Freedom from schizophrenia, a twin's quest | Cyndi Shannon Weickert | TEDxSydney

At 17, Cyndi watched with disbelief as her twin, Scott, descended into madness. Pained by Scott's schizophrenia and not satisfied with available treatments, she aimed to find a cure. Cyndi describes the arduous path she has taken to find better treatments for schizophrenia, which offers a ray of hope to those suffering.

Stewart Brand and Chris Anderson : Mammoths resurrected, geoengineering and other thoughts from a futurist

Stewart Brand is a futurist, counterculturist and visionary with a very wide-ranging mind. In conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Brand discusses ... just about everything: human nature, bringing back the wooly mammoth, geoengineering, rewilding and science as organized skepticism -- plus the story of an acid trip on a San Francisco rooftop in the '60s that sparked a perspective-shifting idea. "The story we're told is that we're the next meteor," Brand says, but "things are capable of getting better."

The power of plant-based eating | Dr. Joanne Kong | TEDxUniversityOfRichmond

Dr. Joanne Kong has been praised as one of the most compelling advocates for plant-based nutrition today, centered ethically in raising awareness that greater compassion for animals and our planet is vitally necessary for transformative growth and positive world change. Motivated to become vegetarian over 30 years ago upon learning of the atrocities of factory farming, her lectures promoting veganism have been described as “artfully crafted,” “a positive message about the way our daily choices can make the world a better place for others and for ourselves,” “making a difference and encouraging positive change to happen,” and “enlightening and provocative.” In addition to her animal and environmental advocacy work, she is a critically-acclaimed and award-winning classical pianist, and empowers individuals from all walks of life through her lectures and workshops on performance anxiety. She is a professor at the University of Richmond where she received the 2017 Sustainability Leadership Award, and her new book is titled "If you’ve ever loved an animal, go vegan."

Sue Jaye Johnson: What we don't teach kids about sex

As parents, it's our job to teach our kids about sex. But beyond "the talk," which covers biology and reproduction, there's so much more we can say about the human experience of being in our bodies. Introducing "The Talk 2.0," Sue Jaye Johnson shows us how we can teach our children to tune in to their sensations and provide them with the language to communicate their desires and emotions -- without shutting down or numbing out.

Busting the charity overhead myth | Juanita Wheeler | TEDxSouthBank

Juanita Wheeler busts the overhead myth in this powerful talk around her journey from high-powered for-profit marketing executive to non-for-profit overhead. When Juanita Wheeler attended TEDxSouthBankWomen in 2012, she was at a crossroads. She was a director of global marketing for a multinational corporation, but she had fallen out of love with her work. She wanted to do something bigger, something more important, and something that would change the world. The speakers at TEDxSouthBankWomen suggested such a thing might be possible. In May 2013, five months after TEDxSouthBankWomen dared her to dream, Juanita formed her own consultancy firm, Full & Frank. Since then, she has helped organisations such as Hummingbird House, the YWCA and the Puuya Foundation to think and act strategically to achieve their mission sooner.

Planting a Seed Against Discrimination | Alex Appella | TEDxCórdoba

"How much harm is caused by discrimination?” This is one of the many questions Alex asks herself each day. Here, she tells the story of her family, who emigrated from Hungary before and after World War Two, many of them to save their lives. Alex's great-uncle’s resilience combined with her creativity transformed this story into a book and into a traveling library that is made possible each year by crowdfunding. It travels free of charge by bus to visit schools across Argentina, planting seeds against discrimination along the way. Alex Appella was born in the USA, in a very small town in eastern Oregon and she arrived to Argentina in 1994 to investigate her family’s history. She began hand-binding her writings and collages while living on a boat in Alaska before taking her creations to the streets and plazas of Latin America. What began as a solution within a nomadic lifestyle has become her way of life. Alex’s artist’s books are exhibited regularly in shows and galleries across the USA and can be found in the special collections of institutions like The Getty Museum (Los Angeles), The New York Public Library, and in libraries and universities throughout North America.
