Aziza Chaouni is named a TED2014 Fellow

Aziza Chaouni a civil engineer and architect who focuses on creating sustainable, built environments in the developing world — has been named a TED 2014 Fellow. TED (which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design), holds two conferences each year, featuring the ever-popular TED Talks, short lectures on “ideas worth spreading.”

Next year, she will be joining 20 other “trailblazers” in Vancouver for TED2014: The New Chapter.

2014 marks TED’s 30th anniversary, and the theme for TED2014 is simply this: “The Next Chapter.” We’ll be seeking to understand what are truly the most significant developments of the last 30 years … and applying that knowledge to understand what’s ahead. The theme makes it easy for us to reach out to the world’s greatest minds and challenge them to help shape a program better than any in our history — in an unforgettable custom theater designed for talk.
