This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Change comes only from those who act...
Valerie Miller is one of the co-founders of Mother T's, a community centre whose objective is to rebuild community, facilitate connection and tackle problems such as loneliness and isolation. The team are setting up a 'time bank’, a system of reciprocal service exchange where hours of time are used as currency. The team behind Mother T's believe it has the potential to transform the way we live our lives, putting the emphasis back on 'community'. Valerie and the Mother T's team drew inspiration from friends who recently set up a similar project, Northern Lights, in Ramsey.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
