Being Young and Making an Impact: Pie Alvarez at TEDxKatipunanAve

As the youngest female mayor in Philippine history at age 22, Maria Carmela Alvarez, or Pie, has worked to make her hometown of San Vicente, Palawan climate-resilient and a prime ecotourism destination. Challenging stereotypes of traditional politics in the Philippines, Pie talks about how having young blood in public service can turn the country's future around in her humorous yet inspiring TEDx talk.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
