"Spring is (hopefully) coming and we miss you guys. So, this month we have decided to celebrate you, the TEDx community, with a get-together, by live-streaming
this year's TEDxChange. Revolving around the concept of "Positive Disruption", they will be showcasing a collection of speakers that will challenge preconceived
ideas, engage leaders and give a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community.
We invite you to join us for a relaxing evening at the "In Culise" venue, on the 3rd of April, starting from 18:00. Have a cocktail or drink a bear, watch the
livestream of TEDx speeches and rejoice in the company of like-minded TEDsters.
We will be live-streaming the event starting from 19:00 to 20:30. Following that, we invite you for an open-mic session where you can present your plea for change.
Make new connections or just unwind in the company of you friends, inspire us on stage or just listen to others and be inspired.
Book you agenda for the 3rd of April. And let us know that you will be attending by completing the following
About TEDxChange and TEDxChange 2013:
TEDxChange is an event created out of a partnership between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the TEDx program. It is an initiative devoted to
ideas worth spreading in the areas of global health and development. The TEDxChange team works with TEDx organizers around the world to help
facilitate meaningful discussions on topics including vaccines, polio, malaria, HIV/AIDS, maternal and newborn child health and agricultural development.
The TEDxChange initiative also includes a global signature event convened by Melinda Gates and broadcast across the TEDx community.
Theme 2013: Positive Disruption
Disruption is usually unwelcome. It represents conflict, chaos, and potential danger. We discourage disruptive behavior in our homes and our societies,
often favoring passivity and compliance.
But disruption can be a positive - sometimes vital - catalyst for change. It can challenge old assumptions, ignite conversations, activate authorities and
expose new possibilities. Disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community.
To solve the most intractable challenges in health and development, we need positive disruption. It is the path to true progress.
About TED and TEDx
For over 30 years now, the TED nonprofit stands for and is devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading". This conference, which
debuted in 1984 by bringing together astonishing people from three worlds, Technology, Entertainment and Design
, has an ever expanding reach into fields of interest such as science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world. Every year,
carefully selected attendees face an idea-marathon over a span of four days, more than 50 speeches and special artistic performances in Long Beach,
To further engage and develop the worldwide community of thinkers and achievers, TED developed a special initiative. The TEDx program gives
communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through inspiring experiences at the local level.
TEDxBucharest, the local TEDx independently organized event, is proud to have been involved in this initiative since
its very beginnings, in 2009.
