About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn 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)Demand for palm oil is increasing and has become central to the economies of the developing countries where it's grown.

But there is a price to pay that doesn't show up on the till receipt. Deforestation. The loss of species. Indigenous people being forced off their land. Pollution. Climate change.Producing palm oil sustainably is one of the biggest challenges we face. Darrel's presentation covers the beginnings of sustainable development for palm oil and what that means for the environment and people.
