The RSA-US Board of Trustees is pleased to announce TED's Chris Anderson as the 2015 Benjamin Franklin Medal recipient.
Awarded since 1957, and one of the society's two highest honors, the Benjamin Franklin Medal is conferred to those who have made profound differences in areas closely linked to the RSA's agenda.
There could be no one more worthy to accept the Benjamin Franklin Medal than Chris Anderson. He is a change agent, idea generator, philanthropist, and social entrepreneur who has impacted global access to ideas worth spreading through the curation and development of TEDTalks. The TED platform has sparked collaborative action for pressing social challenges, and the RSA is honored to acknowledge Chris Anderson's significant global impact.
