With over 6,000 events (in over 100 countries and over 1,000 cities) having taken place since the TEDx program’s start in 2009, the TEDx community is truly global. And with a community like this, we at the TEDx blog have decided to try something new — weekly language playlists!
Уважаемые дамы и господа, встречайте первый плейлист выступлений TEDx на русском!

At TEDxBrooklyn, she explains how she got here, and tells the stories of some of the designers and planners working for her organization, Global Health Corps.
