TEDx and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have teamed up for a very special TEDx project -- TEDxChange. TEDxChange marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the eight Millennium Development Goals set out by the UN to tackle global issues such as poverty, child mortality and disease. Convened by Melinda French Gates and featuring talks by some of the world's most inspired thinkers and doers, TEDxChange will look at what changes have taken place in the last decade, and what more needs to be done to ensure the health and well-being of future generations.
Focused on the theme "The Future We Make," TEDxChange will be hosted by TED curator Chris Anderson. The live event at the Paley Center for Media in New York City will be streamed live to the web on September 20th, beginning at 3PM GMT/11AM EDT/8AM PDT -- and local TEDx communities around the world will be watching.
TEDxChange will be followed by TEDxLondon, hosted by Wired UK editor David Rowan and featuring a number of great speakers, including Link TV's own Wendy Hanamura and ViewChange Online Film Contest judge, author and MacArthur Fellow Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Chimamanda will be announcing the finalists in the ViewChange Online Film Contest.
