TEDxChange, convened by Melinda Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson, will focus on “Big Picture” thinking around our most complex problems — and their solutions.

Around the world, nearly 200 events from 66 countries will watch the livestream together. We asked some of the TEDxChange event organizers to complete the sentence, “The reason you should attend my event is…” in seven words or less. Here are their answers:

The reason you should attend my event is:

“To change the world … and drinks & snacks.” Patricia, TEDxSKEChange, Lebanon >>
