Crisis And Response – 29 May

From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 29 May 2016

Crisis And Response
People respond to a crisis in different ways. Moments of crisis can upend our lives, but can also help define them.
Is it better to not let a crisis define our lives? What if our response to a crisis could actually open up opportunities to change things…. For the better?
Host Guy Raz talks with five TED speakers about crises they’ve faced… and how they responded  - exploring how a quick, compassionate or unexpected response can turn crisis into opportunity.

Ken Kamler: When Crisis Strikes On Everest — How Do You Respond?
Matt Weinstein: What Lessons Can We Learn From Losing Our Life's Savings?
Melissa Fleming: How Do You Make The International Community Care About The Refugee Crisis?
Nancy Lublin: How Can Text Messaging Save Lives?
Kitra Cahana: Can A Massive Stroke Change A Life — For The Better?
