TEDxChange: The Big Picture

Posted by:


What is your role in solving the world’s biggest problems? Climate change, global poverty, the AIDS/HIV crisis — solving these problems will demand big thinking and unprecedented international cooperation.

That’s where TEDxChange comes in. TEDxChange 2012 is a platform for sharing game-changing ideas — and the world is invited to join the conversation.

Solving big problems means seeing the big picture. This year’s theme, “The Big Picture,” goes beyond single-issue solutions and highlights the interconnectedness of today’s most pressing problems.

TEDxChange will be streamed live from Berlin on and at at 5:30 PM CEST on April 5. The program will run for 90 minutes.

The event — convened by Melinda Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson — will feature Sven Giegold, European parliamentarian and green industry advocate; Jeff Chapin, product designer for IDEO; and Theo Sowa, interim CEO of the African Women’s Development Fund — plus the amazing Senegalese singer Baaba Maal.

Nearly 200 communities in 66 countries around the world are already taking part by watching the livestream together and hosting conversations. Find an event near you.
