About this event

Our event will be hosted at Yonsei University in a auditorium that seats 200 people on November 19th. There is a lovely common area outside the auditorium with tables and couches where audience members and speakers can interact. The event will be from 3pm to 5:30pm and we are planning to recruit 4 live speakers and play 2 live talks.

The TEDxYouthSeoul event will focus on the theme of identity by 'Play, Learn, Build, and Sharing.' We will ask questions like "Who am I?" or "What values define me?" and we will try to help audience members take a step closer to finding the answers to these questions.

This time, we are definitely trying to make our event more interactive and make everyone feel as if they belong, are truly a part of the wonderful experience. We will have a couple activities and will allow a lot of discussion time between the speakers and audience members in the common area right outside the auditorium.
