- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
In this talk, Bayan Smith shares how through effort we can make change. He explores the phrase “Don’t curse the darkness, light a candle”.
Bayan dedicates his time alongside friends in promoting a process of community-building in their neighborhood. They see their activities as making a contribution to refreshing and renovating some of society’s decaying values and idle standards. He has also been part of an agency coordinating this process at a national level for the past 3 years.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
