We need to create a secure nuclear future because nuclear is not going away, says Kenneth Luongo. Radiation does not respect borders, and we can't address the challenges it presents only on a national basis. Luongo advocates a 'mosaic' approach to global problem solving: thousands of small pieces that fit together to create a final result. Global nuclear security is a field in which the mosaic approach can make progress in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Kenneth Luongo co-chairs the International Fissile Materials Working Group and is a member of the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group. Previously Luongo served as a senior adviser for non-proliferation policy to the US Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary.
In the spirit 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)
