April 5 in Kolkata !  

TEDxChange  – April 5, 2012, live from Berlin

Convened by Melinda French Gates. Hosted by Chris Anderson.

The current economic climate has drawn our focus to immediate needs closest to home. But now, more than ever, it's critical to keep site of the fact that we are part of interdependent, global community. And too many within that community cannot meet their most basic needs: food, clean water, life-saving medical treatment and vaccines.

We can't proceed with business as usual.

On April 5, 2012, we'll take a step back and look at the big picture: Why should we, as a society, continue to invest in global health and development? How can we work across borders and political boundaries to make positive change? And what returns can we expect on our investments?

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. 
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 

Our event is calledTEDxEasternMetropolitanBypass
where x = independently organized TED event.

At our 
 TEDxEasternMetropolitanBypass  event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
