TEDxSwarthmore - Stephanie Nyombayire - Fighting Poverty, Wars, and Famines

Every day, the dignity of entire communities continues to be traded for ready-made campaigns and solutions, spreading the belief that problems come from the inside and solutions must come from the outside. Great marketing campaigns raise the profile of the marketeers of misery while carefully avoiding complicated explanations that actually may provide any real understanding of the context. This generation of change makers seeking to live in a more equal world must ask themselves by what means the marketeers of misery can be driven out of business.As a first-year student, Stephanie Nyombayire ('08) co-founded the Genocide Intervention Network. She is a graduate student at the NYU Wagner School of Public Policy.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)
