As Principal Partner of TEDxYouth@Sydney for 2017, we're excited to bring you some of the world's most inspiring young minds who are challenging status quos and leading the way in their fields.
TEDxYouth@Sydney is a platform for ideas worth spreading designed for young change-makers, thinkers, innovators, activists, and entrepreneurs between the ages of 16 and 26.
Like TED, TEDxYouth covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — but all with a youth focus. This year it returns for a fourth year in a new home at Sydney Town Hall.
Vice-Chancellor and Principal Dr Michael Spence said the University of Sydney’s partnership with TEDxYouth@Sydney was a perfect match.
“We share a belief in the power of education and in providing a platform for young people to truly find their voice and make a difference,” Dr Spence said.
“The world is changing. The future depends on the exploration of fresh and diverse perspectives, and nurturing the talent and courage of our young people.”
We'll be hosting a free satellite event on our Camperdown campus to bring all the talks and performances live from TEDxYouth@Sydney at Sydney Town Hall.
Join us on Wednesday 6 September from 9:30am to 6pm on Eastern Avenue, Law Lawns, to enjoy free coffee, popcorn and an inspiring line-up of speakers.
The theme for TEDxYouth@Sydney 2017 is Shifting the Future and includes talks and performances from by a number of young pioneers, including Sydney graduates:
Other talks will range from topics about music, ground-breaking mathematical theorems, climate change and sustainability, marital arts stunt doubling, parkour and a number of other cool and exciting subjects – all with a youth focus.
