TEDxChange 2012 is a TEDx event co-organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and TED. Convened by Melinda French Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson, TEDxChange will focus on issues surrounding global health and development. TEDxChange type events are TEDx events hosted around the live webcast of TEDxChange, and also feature local speakers. Our event is called TEDxOdessaChange, and is one of many TEDx events happening around the globe on April 5/6th that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDxChange 2010.
On April 6, 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?
- What returns can we expect on our investments?
