Our aim is to build a platform for invaluable and talented young people in order to provide them with the opportunity to introduce themselves to a wide audience, to build connections and think together. It is important to create a permeable channel between talented young people and open-minded organisationsand leaders.

1. My world – presenting the world of Generation Y and Z, the world as they see it with their focuses. What motivates them and what do they think about the older generation.
2. The varied nature of talent – young people who discovered the strength of their capabilities and found the creative character hidden in them mark out from their peers. They capture the moment of the discovery of their talent from several different perspectives.
3. Great works – presenting of projects which have reached the phase of becoming reality or are already in the making
4. Effecting the world – social responsibility, shaping of the world and the self stimulated by the project
5. Free flow of imagination – creative way of production – creativity without obstacles, productions and their creators inspired by a creative perspective on the world


Our presenters are either actively involved in education as students or have recently graduated from a high schools, college or university who captured attention by participating competitions, submitting applications for projects, or as a result of their studies or hobbies where
– they stand out from the others thanks to their innovative ideas
– they are capable of acquiring the mentality of TED and
– they manage to capture the interest of society and the audience of TEDx


Introductory campaign
What do you think the key for future lies in? How about green energy? How about the convergence of communities? The 4G? Creation through free source code? A new culture of organisational structure? Or plainly, a screw in the brain?
Anyone can express his or her opinion about future which will be recorded in a one-minute video (continuous media presence on community portals starting from September)

Application for candidates for presenters
Young people aged 10-28 can apply with 2-5 minutes videos in topics which fit the thematics of TEDxY@BP and come up with a groundbreaking theory, idea, thought or a project that has already happened. The decision will be made by a jury and by the votes of the public.

Mini events on the countryside
In 5 university cities (Szeged, Debrecen, Pécs, Miskolc, Győr) talented youngsters are collected by the local communities who will have a chance to introduce themselves at the event of the selection – the best ones can get into the main conference.
