On Sunday 27 November, around 500 guests, including international and Swiss diplomats, local officials, the heads of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, corporate and financial leaders, academics, journalists, health professionals, volunteers, museum curators, scientists, economists and other ‘doers and thinkers’ will be invited to take part in a very special TEDx experience at the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices in Geneva. The European Director of TED, Bruno Giussani, will be the host and master of ceremonies. The event is being jointly organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

Each of the speakers will share their unique thoughts and insights into what can be done to multiply the power of humanity.
