With the vision of transforming the world, TED Global has been an active participant in key movements across the globe.

The conference is set for August 27 – 30, 2017 and will bring together an incredible team of multi-faceted professionals who harbor the right skills to collectively assist in shaping the program and its management. From dreamers and doers to entrepreneurs and scientists, TED Global is set to create a major and unparalleled difference in the economic landscape of Tanzania.
