"If a kid can create Facebook, then why can't I start something?" ponders young change agent Akbar Khan. In this compelling and inspiring talk, you'll marvel at the ambitions of a 15-year-old boy determined to creatively convert one man's trash into another man's treasure. Already the head of his own non-profit organization, Akbar Khan is on his way to changing the world, one bag at a time. Inspiring, ingenious and humorous. 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
