The 600 guests approaching Al-Rasheed Hotel to give life to TEDxBaghdad!
So many inspiring (inter) national speakers – Iraqis and foreigners. It’s impossible to talk about them here, but their videos, which will be posted soon, will do the talking!
We are not alone in this world, our friends and supporters in 20+ countries watched the livestream not only on their laptops, but some organized a live stream event. In Dubai they did as well, I leave you with some pictures.
Thankfully Baghdad gathers all Iraqis even overseas!
