Why I’m excited about TEDxChange, by Melinda Gates

Posted by: Tedstaff

Via the Gates Foundation’s Foundation Notes blog: On Monday, Sept. 20, TEDxChange will look at the eight Millennium Development Goals set by the UN back in 2000 — and assess how close we are to reaching them by 2015. Melinda Gates made the video above to invite the world to watch online or at a local satellite event. From her post:

I have personally seen that, yes, even one person can affect the world. Whether it’s a mother-in-law in India learning a new way to ensure that her grandchild is born safely, or a medic administering lifesaving polio vaccines to hundreds of children — small acts add up. The future is not fixed. We all have a hand in how it plays out.
