The TED Prize is designed to leverage the TED* community’s exceptional array of talent and resources. It is awarded annually to an exceptional individual who receives $100,000 and, much more important, “One Wish to Change the World.” After several months of preparation, s/he unveils his/her wish at an award ceremony held during the TED Conference. These wishes have led to collaborative initiatives with far-reaching impact. The 2011 winner JR ahs produced a magnificent and touching video about a recent photographic project which is not only groundbreaking but also very emotional to watch.
The list of previous winners of the TED price includes Jamie Oliver, Bill Clinton and Bono
I know the above video has been available online for quite a while, however it is one of those clips you can watch over and over again.
Thanks for reading
