The TEDx community lost a beloved member this week. Giorgio Ungania, organizer and curator of TEDxDubai, passed away on Sunday at age 46. Giorgio was a force of life and an instrumental leader in our community, organizing his first event in 2009, and going on to organize many more events, including TEDxYouth@Dubai and TEDxDubaiChange.
He was a mentor and a friend to so many across the globe. We at TED will miss him greatly. Our thoughts are with his wife, Natascia, his son, Sky and everyone else who knew him.
