TEDActive Projects

TED Conversations are continuing to break new grounds for the dialogue about our great challenges. This time it’s TEDActive, the offical videocast event happening on the same time as the main TED.

In February at TEDActive 2011, the TEDActive Projects were launched. Five teams came together to explore, collaborate and act on five vital issues: education, mobility, sustainability, social networks and travel, sharing ideas about how to create attitude shifts that might produce positive change. Now we’re taking those crowd-sourced solutions up a notch, and asking our TED.com community to join the conversations.

I think they can be an important voice to shape a better world, but only if they can generate a open discussion with people with different perspectives. So let’s help them!
