TEDxPrishtina - Ahmed Naguib - The Egyptian Revolution, a nation's fulfillment of its destiny

January 2011 finds Ahmed on the streets side-by-side with many other Egyptians in their attempt to fight for social justice and democracy. Ahmed has mobilized his family and friends -- a group of five -- to march together for 20 kilometers to Tahrir Square. When they reach the downtown area, the group has managed to gather over 30,000 protesters. Ahmed was a member of the Trustees Council of the Revolution, an organizing committee of Tahrir Square protests. More recently, he has launched the Coordination Committee of the Masses, a joint committee to mobilize public opinion to pressure Egyptian interim authorities to fulfill the popular demands of the revolution. A firm believer that our generation has the potential to change the world, he is currently working on starting a school for young social activists to get educated on the practical side of politics and on how to impact policies.The effort to build something new comes with gaining momentum to change the old, and the persistence to follow change through. At TEDxPrishtina Ahmed told the story of Egypt during the Arab Spring and talked about the challenges faced to fully implement the demands of the Revolution.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.
