About this event

“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. In this TEDxChange, 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?”
TEDxDomlurChange, in collaboration with TEDxChange will be a cross-disciplinary event, focused on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world with specific reference to the education sector.
