Tshering Tobgay was a Bhutanese civil servant who worked to advance vocational training. He was the first civil servant to resign to take up active politics (he did so in Feb 2007). At that time His Majesty the King repeatedly called for people to take up politics and form political parties to prepare for the introduction of democracy.
Now Tshering is a Member of Parliament representing Sombaykha Constitutency in Haa. He is the Leader of the possibly the world's smallest Opposition Party in the National Assembly of Bhutan. Tshering is 46 years old, married with 2 children, enjoys the outdoors, trekking, running and biking.
He discusses what Gross National Happiness, and what makes him happy, as any red blooded Bhutanese would.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
