Ageing expert David van Bodegom radically changed his career as a medical doctor when he realized he did not want to cure people anymore; he wanted to keep them healthy. He was inspired by a 93 year old man in Ghana, who showed him how the living environment is the key to healthy ageing. Now he shares the recipe for a healthy long life with us.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
