Knowledge and information allow people to identify not only opportunities but also obstacles that hinder their economic, social, and human development. Effective communication can give communities the tools they need to use water more efficiently, protect children from disease, or grow better crops. Informed citizens are empowered to find solutions to their problems.

TEDxWashingtonCircle is an independently organized event held in Washington, DC that strives to bring together remarkable and notable speakers from diverse disciplines to share with our audience their passionate stories and recipes for development initiatives and program s that tackle food security, malnutrition, and poverty in poor countries.
