TEDYouth audience

TEDYouth is a day-long event for middle and high school students, with live speakers, hands-on activities and great conversations. Scientists, designers, technologists, explorers, artists, performers (and more!) share short talks on what they do best, serving both as a source of knowledge and inspiration for youth around the globe.

TEDYouth 2015: Made in the Future

TEDYouth 2015 is taking place at the Brooklyn Museum on Saturday, November 14, from 11am to 6pm.

At TEDYouth — and at more than 100 TEDxYouth events tuning in live online around the globe — young people will gather to explore the event's theme, Made in the Future. This theme will provide youth with new perspectives on their own future job possibilities beyond traditional careers, some of which may not yet exist. TEDYouth 2015 is an opportunity for youth to think about the world in 2035, and to engage with experts who consider the corners of our intangible imagination to be the foundation for our potential future reality. Speakers will touch on an array of questions about our future, including:

  • How will artificial intelligence both limit and expand our options?
  • What will matter in the future?
  • As resources diminish, what new materials will we harness or create?
  • Which types of careers will emerge or cease to exist?

Together, we will seek to answer these questions from a number of different perspectives — scientific, cultural, technological, educational, artistic, entrepreneurial, environmental and more.

TEDYouth will be streamed live, free of charge, in English, Spanish and Arabic. You can host a TEDxYouth event or an informal viewing party around the live webcast of TEDYouth. The webcast URL will be released closer to the date.

Teenagers from the New York City boroughs between the ages of 13 and 18 are invited to apply to attend TEDYouth. The application will be available here starting in September. Attendance will be free of charge for a total of 400 admitted young people.
