TEDxYouthDay is a series of events all around the world that coincide with Universal Children’s Day in late November. These events are designed to empower and inspire young people.
TEDxYouthDay events present a combination of live speakers and pre-recorded TEDTalks to audiences around the world. These events vary widely in size, format, and theme, but they share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, and empowering young leaders.
