About this event

Following a very successful inaugural TEDxBrookhouseSchool 2012 our team of students and teachers has this year collaborated to develop TEDxYouth@BrookhouseSchool which will be held on 16th November 2013. To celebrate the creativity, innovation and of these young people in Nairobi we have embraced the global TEDYouthDay theme 'The Spark', bringing together speakers and performers who will present empowering stories of how they have pursued their creative ideas and created positive impact in their communities. The event will bring together a line-up of inspiring speakers, spectacular performers, and Nairobi's inquisitive young high school minds in the spirit of "ideas worth spreading".
