One of the most exciting events to take place this year, TedX Mogadishu featuring many of our favorite Somali speakers, performers and thinkers is happening right now. Watch here.
TedXMogadishu is in full swing today in the Somali capital. The organizers have done a tremendous job this year making great online videos of the participants as well as some really cool footage of Mogadishu.
This year's theme is Iskaa Wax U Qabso. Here's how they explain it:
Somalia’s greatest resource has always been its people. Their unbreakable spirit has lifted the country back onto the world stage, and Somalia’s capital city is now rising once again. In 2017, TEDxMogadishu will celebrate the hard work being done by Somalis, for Somalis. Iskaa Wax U Qabso is a call to action for everyone to play a role in shaping the future of Somalia at this critical moment in time. To collaborate, participate, volunteer and help fulfill the dreams of a nation – together. Somalia’s strength, stability and success is in the hands of its people, and we must all Get Involved.
