The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and New TED x Change

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has joined forces with TED and with this partnership Melinda Gates shares her hope that “TEDxChange will serve as a catalyst for our continued conversations about the future we will make together.” She asks “What does the future hold for global health and development? And how can we all be a part of making a better world?” ~Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on TEDxChange.

The TED Blog also explains that the launch of this project is inspired by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals which include:

  1. Eradicating poverty and hunger
  2. Achieving universal primary education
  3. Promoting gender equality and empowering women
  4. Reducing child mortality
  5. Improving maternal health
  6. Combatting HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases
  7. Ensuring environmental sustainability
  8. Developing a global partnership for development
