Ever heard of TED Talks - the ones where one inspiring person shares a big idea and it's shared on the internet for the whole world to see? The talks can be on any subject: the common theme is the passion the individual brings to their subject.


RNW was invited to join in the making of a TEDx - where x = independently produced under license from TED. The theme: the future of peace and justice. The date: September 9.


The buzz: enormous - our hashtag #tedxhagueacademy made number 6 on twitter worldwide trends that day. The result: nine new TED talks that you can see on our website, including a talk by the woman in charge of RNW's Love Matters India project, Vithika Yadav. Please watch them and be inspired.
