Details About the talk

Depois de uma catástrofe natural, existe apenas uma pequena janela de oportunidade para dar a largada em esforços efetivos de recuperação antes que o mundo vire seu atenção para outro lugar. Quem deveria tomar a frente? Quando um terrível tornado atingiu sua cidade natal, as irmãs Caitria and Morgan O’Neill — com apenas 20 e 24 anos à época - tomaram as rédeas da situação e agora estão ensinando outras pessoas a fazer 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.
