This TedX Change event explores the power of communities to shape the future. Extraordinary work in health, education, and development is happening at every level of society, all corners of the world. How can we harness the expertise, voices, and experiences of the global community to make change?
One way to answer the question is to look for examples of places where innovation is happening. India is a hub of creative problem-solving for many of the issues that will make a difference for the health and well-being of poor people around the world.
This event brings together some of the country’s leading thinkers to bring those innovations to the fore, and to examine very different approaches to reaching the same goal: safeguarding the health of mothers and young children.
