Is it possible to end global homelessness? Mark McGreevy tackles this question in his talk: “Massaging Life Into a Wooden Leg.”
For 26 years, McGreevy has worked to bring an end to global homelessness through the UK-based NGO Depaul International, which coordinates the activities of a group of homelessness charities around the world. A native of Middlesbrough, England, McGreevy is a recipient of the Order of the British Empire, which was awarded by Prince Charles for his international contribution to homelessness service. McGreevy will spend the next year and a half in residence in Chicago at DePaul University’s Institute of Global Homelessness – which he founded in 2014 – raising funds to support the organization and developing tools to help address homelessness.
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
