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 TEDxGuatemalaCityChange and is one of many TEDx events happening around the globe on April 5th that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDxChange 2010. We will be hosting the event on April 9th due to national festivities in Guatemala during the 5th.
