TEDxFulbright in partnership with the Fulbright Association challenge the general public to submit bold, innovative ideas that will tackle the most difficult issues that face our society today. “We must dare to think ‘unthinkable’ thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world.” -JW Fulbright
