Looking through different perspectives to find creative solutions to world problems or big issues.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

James Pearce

Founder at Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced people
Founder and creator of what started as a Facebook Group “Phone credit for refugees and displaced people” turned into an organisation that provides vital phone credit to refugees and displaced adults and children around the world. The Facebook group created by James from his computer following an eye-opening trip to Calais. Giving the gift of communication to people who are seperated from family and friends, miles away from home and in very uncertain circumstances. They have supplied over 700,000’s worth of phone credit to displaced adults and children allowing them to make contact with loved ones, stay up to date with news from home and even summon emergency life saving assistance. Over 70,000 Facebook followers and 700,000 worth of top ups for people who need it most. James talk will cover the small thread of where compassion and responsibility end. Showing his perspective of what a community is ? What do we define as 'our own'. How this allowed him to find a creative solution.
