Have you lived and worked overseas as an adult or accompanied your parents on international assignments as a child, and upon return to your home culture felt like you had “Come Home to a Strange Land” ?
Engage in thought provoking discussions with Dr. Paulette Bethel around issues of identity, transition, cultural fusion and repatriation to the place we call “home.”
TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TED’s clearinghouse offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and currently has 450 TEDTalks videos available for download, representing a global community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
I look forward to working with Brice to spread the word about TED.com’s Charter of Compassion and his community galvanizing efforts to bring attention not only to the need for showing kindness and compassion on a daily basis, but to also offering a wonderful opportunity shine a spotlight on the tremendous gifts and talents that TCKs from all over the globe.
