Description

Access to clean water is a human right and is closely incorporated in the Millennium Development Goal number 7 with the aim to reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.

Jan Eliasson is chairman of the Swedish WaterAid, former Minister of Foreign Affairs in Sweden and currently represented in the UN group of Ambassadors for promoting the Millennium Goals, offered the opening speech at TEDxUniversityofGothenburg.

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)
