TEDxPortsmouth - Mike Austin - Change isn't as challenging as you believe

Mike was inspired by SIFE UK to make a difference -- In his second year at university Mike set-up and lead an international SIFE project in Madagascar called 'Right Light'. Right Light provided microfinance to 107 families in Madagascar to afford a solar lamp to replace expensive and dangerous kerosene lamps. Mike strongly believes that his experiences show that any idea is possible, that university is a great environment to develop as an individual, beyond academia, and that you can create change -- anywhere, anyhow.- About TEDx -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)
