On March 30, 2013, a group of youth and adult speakers and performers will come together to share their “ideas worth spreading.” TEDxYouth@Austin is a forum created to bring middle and high school students from the central Texas area into the TEDx movement.
TED Talks (Technology Entertainment Design) began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED (an annual global conference in Long Beach, CA) when people from those three worlds come together. Under the moniker "ideas worth spreading," talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been reengineered around TED Talks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world's most inspiring voices. As of November 2012, TED Talks have been viewed more than one billion times.
We are conducting our own TEDx event in Austin for youth based on this purpose with engaging stories, inspiring performances, and intriguing presentations. We will explore what the theme of LimitLess means to each of us. Is it the incredible passion and dedication of youth? Is it their boundless creativity and imagination? Is it their enthusiasm and optimism? During TEDxYouth@Austin, we will discover that, for empowered youth, the possibilities are truly LimitLess!
Austin area HS and engaged MS students are encouraged to register - the deadline is 2.14.13 - seating is limited. Get ready for March 30, 2013! Stay updated through Facebook and Twitter.
