The wars we ignore, reporting from a forgotten crisis
Sam Mednick • TEDxKaunas
This talk will explore what it’s like reporting from a forgotten crisis. It’ll look at why we connect more with some crises and not others and why it matters if we relate at all. As humans, we’re numb to large numbers of people but we’re receptive to individual stories. This talk aims to put a human face at the heart of the crisis in South Sudan and explain why when we shut off from what’s going on around us, we’re in danger of losing some of our own humanity.
