Today at Dovecot, Edinburgh for the annual Ted x event.
Many excellent speakers speaking about their inspiring work with, particularly, under-privileged young people around the world. Speakers included crime officers (Karen McCluskey from Strathclyde police, famous for her work with gang culture), musicians (Rosemary Malden who works in Soweto with young musicians, and Plan B, AKA Ben Drew, who is passionately advocating understanding for deprived young people in UK and beyond.) Further speakers included surgeons working with facial disfigurement and Daniel Kish, who uses vibrations to help blind people navigate. And there were many others.
