About this event

In this event, PUC Goiás will join TEDxChange, taking a step back and apply new perspectives to big picture issues. Why, as a global society, should we continue to invest in overseas development? How can we work across borders and political boundaries to bring about positive change? And what returns can we expect on our investments?
