Held annually since 2011, 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 lessons on what they do best, serving as a source of knowledge and inspiration for youth around the globe.

Recognizing the potential to both spark innovative thinking and tap into the inventive enthusiasm of teenagers and children, our annual TEDYouth events feature Talks designed to appeal to this younger audience, and also Talks conceived, designed, and delivered by teens themselves for their peers.

Worldwide simulcasts invite invaluable cross-cultural exchange among this burgeoning TED community. The event also coincides with more than 100 self-organized TEDxYouthDay events worldwide.
