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.
On September 20, 2010, leaders around the world will take a look at where we are ten years in: where does the global community stand in the work to save and improve lives around the world? And what does the future hold? They’ll be having a live TEDxChange webcast so you can tune in as well.
