About this event

Our event is focused on youths in the greater Seoul area. It will be a smaller event compared to TEDxYouthSeoul's last event on August 14, 2010 with a maximum of 100 attendees. Our goal is to inspire students with new and fresh ideas. The conference will be two hours long and will be run in English.
