Enter GOOD’s poster contest to win a trip to TEDxChange

Posted by:

On September 20, TEDxChange will take a focused look at the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. Established 10 years ago, the eight goals are:

1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.
2: Achieve universal primary education.
3: Promote gender equality and empower women.
4: Reduce child mortality.
5: Improve maternal health.
6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
7: Ensure environmental sustainability.
8: Develop a global partnership for development.

Co=hosted by TED and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, TEDxChange will look at how the world is doing on these goals so far, and energize us for the road ahead. There are many ways to watch the conference: joining or hosting a local TEDx event; watching the webcast — or you can win a trip to the New York event thanks to GOOD magazine’s poster contest.

The brief: Design a poster that marks the progress made against Millennium Development Goal 1, 4 or 5.

You can see a sample poster here to get your mind rolling on the challenge. The winner of this contest will receive a trip for two (including transportation, hotel and meals) to TEDxChange, September 20 in New York, co-hosted by TED and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Entries are due by midnight Pacific time on August 16, 2010.
