9 Cool TED Talks about Human Rights

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love TED. TED hosts conferences all year round and all over the world, featuring various speakers on all sorts of topics. Typically, the site posts one new video per day, a speech from one of their latest conferences. Naturally, they have amassed a whole bunch on human rights, and we’re gonna put some of the best right here for you (TED doesn’t have a human rights category, so finding them on their site is a little tough). Videos can be from five or six minutes long to 20+ minutes, and this list certainly isn’t an exhaustive one. It’s just the ones that I would recommend, as I’ve watched all of these myself, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I hope you do too.
