This is the third time we are organizing a TEDxYouth Event at Emirates International School – Jumeirah. The event has been organized entirely by our Grade 12 student body, in an attempt to leave a mark in our academic journey.Our theme this year was initiated by the catalyst that brings about dynamic ideas, the revolutionary moment that brings about a progressive change, the foundation to an expanse of philosophies – “THE SPARK.” We are giving EIS-J student speakers and performers the opportunity and platform to exploit this theme as a crux to explore and express their opinions, ideas and stories to a larger audience.
Speakers may not be confirmed. Check event website for more information.
