Changemakers and our world’s future

On September 20, Melinda French Gates hosted TEDxChange: The Future We Make to dispel the myth that we have made little progress on the Millennium Development Goals.

The event brought together high-profile Changemakers to share their success stories. Mechai Viravaidya, statistician and well-known TED speaker Hans Rosling and Graça Machel inspired us with their powerful systems-changing ideas. Live-streamed from 80 different locations around the globe, TEDxChange catalyzed Changemakers around the world’s toughest problems.

Many Ashoka U students, faculty and alumni leaders attended the event and became part of this historical movement. It’s not too late to join the conversation!
