TEDxHarareChange Event – 11th April 2012 at Alliance Francaise Harare

Posted on 11/04/2012


The future is not fixed. We all have a hand in how it plays out. TEDxChange is a partnership of TED and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, designed to act as a catalyst for global conversations on ideas worth spreading on health, development, and education issues.

TEDxChange 2012 is convened by Melinda French Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson

The current economic climate has drawn our focus to immediate needs closest to home. But now, more than ever, it’s critical to keep sight of the fact that we are part of interdependent, global community. And too many within that community cannot meet their most basic needs: food, clean water, life-saving medical treatment and vaccines.

We can’t proceed with business as usual.

On April 11, 2012, we’ll take a step back and look at the big picture: Why should we, as a society, continue to invest in global health and development? How can we work across borders and political boundaries to make positive change? And what returns can we expect on our investments?
