TEDxMcGill - Alex Pritz - An Exploration of cross-cultural education

Alex is a third year McGill student studying in the School of the Environment. Involvement with the student film collective Developing Pictures drew Alex to Haiti and Kenya, where he started his career as an amateur filmmaker. Since then, he has gone on to initiate the Iwastology project through the McGill Dalai Lama Fellowship, a program connecting high school students from Montreal and the Philippines through film and online discussions about environmental issues. Alex sees film and multimedia as a powerful tool for raising awareness and creating change both in the classroom and in the field. 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)
