PeaceAids International PARTNER TEDxAfariwaa : http://tedxafariwaa.com/
About TED and TEDx: TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TED believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. The programs work to building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers from all discipline (technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, development and so on) — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, around the world, all year long. In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading”, TED created TEDx. TEDx is an international community that organizes TED-style events anywhere and everywhere -- celebrating locally-driven ideas and elevating them to a global stage. It is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, wherein speakers and TED Talks videos combine to spark deep discussion and connections. TEDx, where x = independently organized, aims to become a local forum for ideas within the community that inspires people to change their lives, their futures, and ultimately the world.
