Details About the talk

Depois de uma catástrofe natural, só há uma pequena janela de oportunidade para reunir esforços efetivos de recuperação antes que o mundo volte a sua atenção para outro lado. Quem deve ser o responsável? Quando um tornado assustador atingiu a sua cidade natal, as irmãs Caitria e Morgan O’Neill — apenas com 20 e 24 anos na época — tomaram as rédeas da situação e agora estão a ensinar os outros a fazerem o mesmo. (Filmado no TEDxBoston.)

Morgan O'Neill · Disaster relief expert

Pursuing her PhD in atmospheric science did not prepare Morgan O'Neill for a freak tornado hitting her hometown. With her sister, she helped coordinate a local relief effort and is teaching other towns to do the same through the website Recovers.org.
