TEDxSanaa is the first TEDx event in Yemen. It aims at exposing the talent, creativity, and ingenuity of Yemenis. The event will bring the brightest, most creative, most influential Yemenis together to inspire and remind the world of the potential that Yemen has to be a good world citizen. It comes in a very critical time when Yemen, which is one of the Arab Spring countries, entered a transitional phase towards becoming a democratic, modern state. The Slogan of TEDxSanaa 2012 is “inspiring hope” and it would take place on Dec, 31st 2012.
The protagonist of this talk is Dr. Kaled Alamarie Environmental Protection Scientist: “Water wars are real wars that are raging internationally in public and in secret”. Sana’a is a city threatened by drought and depletion of its water resources as indicated in several alarming studies. Khalid has a substantial experience in the field of water and the problems and solutions. His talk will enlighten us about possible ways out of this dilemma for the best interest of the present and future generations.
In thespirit 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.
