TEDxYouth Initiatives

TEDxYouth events happen all year round in schools and in local communities. Once a year, the TEDx community celebrates young people by hosting local events as part of our TEDxYouth Initiative. These events are designed to empower and inspire young people.

Past events

TEDxYouth Weekend 2016

TEDxYouth Weekend was a series of TEDxYouth events that took place around the world on November 19 and 20, 2016, around the theme of What Now? These events are designed to empower and inspire young people.

TEDxYouth 2015

Over 115 events in nearly 50 countries took place alongside the TEDYouth conference, themed "Made in the Future," and young people around the world tuned in to the conference livestream and featured live speakers of their own.

TEDxYouthDay 2014

TEDxYouthDay -- themed "Worlds Imagined" -- took place November 15-16, 2014, with communities across the globe hosting TEDxYouth events alongside TEDYouth — TED's day-long salon event for middle- and high-school students.

TEDxYouthDay 2013

In 2013, TEDxYouthDay — themed “The Spark” — took place from Saturday, November 16 to Sunday, November 17. Our global TEDxYouth events coincided with TEDYouth, a salon event hosted by TED in New Orleans on November 16.

TEDxYouthDay 2012

In 2012, 100 TEDxYouthDay events in almost 50 countries celebrated kids and young people with the theme, "Dream Big… THEN DO IT!" More than 120 youth reporters documented the events around the world.

TEDxYouthDay 2011

Over 100 TEDxYouthDay events in nearly 50 countries happened during TEDxYouthDay under the theme "Play, Learn, Build & Share," -- chosen by the TEDx community. Individual events featured their own unique themes.

TEDxYouthDay 2010

In November 2010 — over a period of 24 hours — 60 TEDxYouthDay events were held in 24 countries. A dedicated TEDxYouthDay Livestream Channel allowed 22,600 viewers to watch nearly half a million minutes of live TEDxYouthDay events.
