About this event

At TEDxYouth@Barcelona we certainly didn’t talk about any depressing news. Or about “ni-ni’s”. Or brain drain. Or youth unemployment. Our aim was to celebrate young talent. Because we’ve got a lot of it in Barcelona and we want to share it with the world.

Related with programming, robotics and mathematics. Photography, graffiti and social entrepreneurship. Never mind what area it was: the first TEDxYouth@Barcelona was an event to showcase examples of young people who chase their passions and help inspire others to find their own.

The event took place on Saturday 16th of February 2013 at the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona).
