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 TEDxTartuChange, 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’ll take 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? At TEDxTartuChange we will also combine watching TEDxChange webcast with group discussions and networking.
