TEDxSydney Youth

A partnership empowering the leaders of tomorrow to share ideas for a better future
The University of Sydney will be the Presenting Partner at TEDxSydney Youth in 2023, held at Riverside Theatre, Parramatta.

The University of Sydney has been proud partners of TEDxSydney since 2012, supporting TEDxSydney and its youth event, TEDxSydney Youth.

The partnership and this event reflect our commitment to bringing together brilliant minds from all walks of life and empowering them to continuously pursue better – for themselves, their communities and our world. 

As a long-term partner, we have been supporting the exchange of innovative ideas for over a decade. University of Sydney academics, students and alumni have often featured in the compelling line-up of thought leaders and change-makers on stage every year.

TEDxSydney Youth 2023

We are proud to be the Presenting Partner of TEDxSydney Youth 2023, providing a stage for young voices to share their vision of the future.

The event will be held at the Riverside Theatre, Parramatta on Wednesday 24 May. This year’s theme is ‘Future Creators’ – how young people are shaping the future they want to see.

As the city's first university, we're for all of Sydney, and are particularly pleased that this event is being held in the geographic and cultural heart of our city - Parramatta.​ We’ve been investing in Western Sydney for 45 years and launched the MySydney Entry and Scholarship Scheme to help all students realise their full potential. 

Over 30% of all NSW’s young people live in Western Sydney and they will play a leading role in defining the future for all of us. We’re delighted to support the young change-makers, thinkers, innovators, activists, entrepreneurs, and go-getters who will shape our world. 

Ideas search

If you are a ‘Future Creator’ aged 12-25 and would like to share your idea on the main stage at TEDxSydney Youth, submit your idea by recording a 1-3 minute talk and share on TikTok or Instagram using #TEDxSydneyYouth23 for a chance to be selected.

Entries close Friday 21 April 2023 and successful speakers will be contacted by the TEDxSydney Youth Curation Team.
