TedX talk by Maen Hammad on skateboarding in Palestine

A great TedX talk by Maen Hammad about his journey to Palestine with skateboarding.

Maen Hammad didn't expect to start a social movement when he traveled to the West Bank - but after engaging with the youth and community, he saw a need for engagement. He tells the story of how, armed with his skateboard (an unlikely tool!) he connected with a new generation. Hear his story here.
