TEDxCanberra - Pierre Johannessen - International development, basketball and valuing youth

Pierre Johan?nessen is show?ing young peo?ple from the slums of Bangladesh to the peaks of Nepal how incred?i?bly able they are as indi?vid?u?als, and how immensely pow?er?ful they are together. In this talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, Pierre reflects on his privileged upbringing as the son of a UN diplomat, his realisation that he could do more in the world, and the application of basketball, his passion, to international development and youth empowerment. 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).
