TEDxObserver - Kamal Mouzawak - Make food not war in Beirut

Kamal Mouzawak Farmer, food artisan, culinary activist Son of a farmer, Kamal set up Beirut's first Farmer's Market in 2004. Called Souk el-Tayeb the farmer's market is a celebration of food and its traditions -- this is especially important in a country like Lebanon which has had a tumultuous history and has long suffered from ethnic and religious divides. Kamal uses the Souk to assist local producers to become sustainable businesses and uses the Souk's kitchen -- where different local women from surrounding villages cook each day -- to help break down religious, political and cultural barriers. He has been recognised as an Ashoka Arab World Fellow. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
