TEDxCalgary - Anil Patel - The sharing imperative

Anil Patel is the co-founder of Framework, the charity that runs the Timeraiser and developed innovative ideas like Civic Footprint and Sharesies. Anil is shifting the approaches of both volunteers and volunteer/non-profit organizations to become a more efficient, interconnected and powerful system. Anil is showing that the philosophy of 'sharing by default' can be realized through technology, but only if embraced as ideology first. To date, Timeraiser events across Canada have generated 95,000 volunteer hours, engaged 6,500 Canadians to pick-up a cause, worked with 350+ agencies in need of skilled volunteers and invested $490,000 in the careers of Canadian artists. And the tools they are developing are making it easier to work in true collaboration with partners, funders and volunteers across the country. 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)
