YOUTH INSPIRING YOUTH.
YOUTH INSPIRING COLUMBUS.
YOUTH INSPIRING THE WORLD.
Who: 100 youth ‘change agents’ were invited to join our audience.
Morning: 10-15 presenters + performers (no older than 25) took the stage.
Afternoon: All youth ‘change agents’ | presenters + performers attended an ‘big ideas incubator’ session.
Post-event: We hope to launch a series of projects created by our youth ‘change agents’ throughout 2012, Columbus’ 200th Year.
Bringing youth to TEDxColumbus: After 2 remarkable years of hosting TEDxColumbus, the planning team began to dream of an event created by youth for youth, an event that offered inspired youth to inspire each other, Columbus, and the world. This is our first effort to host TEDxYouth@Columbus, a morning of remarkable youth voices presenting on stage followed by an afternoon of our attendees (100 invited youth ‘change agents’) co-developing ideas that will inspire the world after the event.
International TEDxYouth Day: On November 20, 2011 — Universal Children’s Day — TEDx organizers across the globe will host events for (and by) young people. These events will vary widely in size, format and theme, but they will share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, empowering young leaders. TEDxYouthDay 2011 will be held on November 20th, with an option to host an event on either Saturday, November 19th, Sunday, November 20th or on Monday, November 21st. Learn more here.
