A Love Letter to Science

Back to overview

Explorer, Mark Pollock and human rights lawyer, Simone George, release their joint TED talk, recorded at the TED Conference in Vancouver in April. 

They speak about how to resolve the tension between acceptance and hope, something they had to try and figure out in the aftermath of Mark’s catastrophic spinal cord injury. They talk about why climbing into the  raging river of grief when tragedy strikes can be the way to get to the next place; and how they are now catalysing collaborations to cure paralysis in our lifetime.
