About this event
TEDxChange 2012 – April 5, 2012, live from Berlin
Convened by Melinda French Gates. Hosted by Chris Anderson.
Local time: 8 AM to noon (with local speakers) at Reel Theater at Irvine Village Apt. Homes
The current economic climate has drawn our focus to immediate needs closest to home. But now, more than ever, it's critical to keep site of the fact that we are part of interdependent, global community. And too many within that community cannot meet their most basic needs: food, clean water, life-saving medical treatment and vaccines.
We can't proceed with business as usual.
On April 5, 2012, we'll take a step back and look at the big picture: Why should we, as a society, continue to invest in global health and development? How can we work across borders and political boundaries to make positive change? And what returns can we expect on our investments?
