My TED story

At the Policy ThinkShop we are constantly looking for communicative resources that will allow us to learn and to share what we learn. Through work with an esteemed colleague we found out about the work that TED is doing and how we might take the information provided in TED to promote issues we care about in the communities we try to serve.
