Today is the last day to vote for your favorites for the ViewChange Online Film Contest. Finalists will be announced this coming Monday.
Monday itself is going to be a packed day for us! We’re going to start in the morning with a live stream of TEDxChange: The Future We Make, a “chance to reflect on the Millennium Development Goals ten years in, and to look forward to where we’ll be.” Speakers include Melinda French Gates, Graça Machel, Hans Rosling, Mechai Viravaidya, and Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew.
This will be followed by a TEDxLondon event featuring a lineup of speakers that includes film contest judge and novelist Chimamanda Adichie announcing the contest finalists.
The day of live streaming will start at 8am PDT. More details and a link coming shortly.
