TEDxCanberra 2011: International development, basketball and valuing youth by Pierre Johannessen

Pierre Johan­nessen is show­ing young peo­ple from the slums of Bangladesh to the peaks of Nepal how incred­i­bly able they are as indi­vid­u­als, and how immensely pow­er­ful they are together.

In this talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, Pierre reflects on his privileged upbringing as the son of a UN diplomat, his realisation that he could do more in the world, and the application of basketball, his passion, to international development and youth empowerment.
