Toby looks at how, by examining how we live our lives, and where we give our money, we can literally save hundreds of lifetimes worth of life over our own lifetime.

Dr.Toby Ord, a research associate of the Faculty of Philosophy from Oxford University, is also the founder of GIving What We can, an international society dedicated to the elimination of poverty in developing worlds. Leading by example, he caps his income to £18,000 and donates the rest to charity.

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)
