TEDxRC² is a worldwide event on 27 November 2011 that aims to multiply the power of humanity and start a global conversation about tomorrow's humanitarian challenges and opportunities.

The "main" event will take place in front of a live audience in Geneva from 16:00 – 18:00 local time, followed by a cocktail. It will feature diverse and fascinating speakers from inside and outside the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. (A small sampling of our speakers is listed below.) We're delighted to have the European Director of TED, Bruno Giussani, as our host.

We expect the event to be webcast in real-time to interested groups of people around the globe. More information about watching the event via webcast will be made available in the coming weeks.

TEDxRC² will take place on the day before the start of the 31st International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, which begins on 28 November. Invitations to the Geneva event will be sent out to Conference participants and other guests this summer. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Our website, www.tedxrc2.com, will launch in early August.
