3:30pm - 5:30pm IST
(UTC +5.5hrs)
Leh, Jammu and Kashmir

TEDx Leh would bring together Ladakh’s change makers along with pioneers in various fields from across the world, in a discussion which would focus on bringing positive change to the remotest parts of the country. We would also have with us people from other industries who have demonstrated successful development models in their fields and now feel it’s time to scale it up to also include the fringe communities which often get left out. Though the talks would be centered mainly on Ladakh and the issues facing the region, the solutions that would emerge from the event here would also be equally applicable to other secluded parts of India and the world, which are desperately trying to break into the development wagon, while also maintaining their cultural and demographic individuality.
