About this event

The theme of this year’s TEDxUNPlaza is “BRAVE: United in Action.” We believe BRAVERY is part of being human, and allows individuals to enact enormous change in the world. Our speakers and attendees have used personal and group courage to disrupt industries, challenge norms, animate movies, combat complexity in policy, and design new structures for a better world. We are proud to deliver their stories of fearlessness, perseverance, courage, and change on September 16, 2013 at a location no less inspiring than the United Nations Headquarters. Come join us as we unite and celebrate a renowned community of individuals for whom BRAVERY is a continual engine for positive action.
