In 1999 Dr. Rob?rt won the Green Cross Award for International Leadership, and in 2000 he won the Blue Planet Prize, the 'Nobel prize' for ecological sustainability. In 2006 he was included in the publication "100 Visionaries of the 20th Century". TEDxM?laren (June 15, 2010) was organized by a bunch of quirky students from Singapore while on exchange in Sweden. The name M?laren comes from Lake M?laren, the third largest lake in Sweden. Lake M?laren meets the Baltic Sea on its eastern end to form 14 major islands, thus shaping Stockholm. Just like Lake M?laren that connects towns across Sweden, TEDxM?laren will connect topics in featuring a holistic perspective of inter-linked global issues through the audience, the organizers and speakers of diverse backgrounds, with different forms of media. TEDxM?laren aims to reach beyond the Scandinavian seas and explore the influence of cultural, political and socio-economic diversity on the way we think, and ought to think for a better future. About TEDx, x = independently organised event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised 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-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.
