John Kluge Social Entrepreneur, Author, and Chief Toilet Hacker Everyone poops. The problem, says John Kluge, is that 2.5 billion of us have no clean place to go, and that lack is generating massive troubles with global health, economic growth, and even education. John cofounded impact investment and business development firm Eirene, which regularly confronts ugly realities like poor sanitation, aging and illiteracy. Now he and his nonprofit group Toilet Hackers are putting the poop problem squarely on the socioeconomic agenda. The man knows what he's doing. The co-author of Charity and Philanthropy for DummiesThe Philanthropunk Manifesto—will reveal how social entrepreneurs are employing the hard-edged ethos of punk rock to drive change. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
