TEDxBasel in Basel, Switzerland

On November 20th, 2010 more than 60 cities connected TEDx organizers host events for (and by) young people -- this global event is TEDxYouthDay and TEDxYouth@Basel was proud to be connected. These events varied widely in size, format and theme, but they will share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, empowering young leaders. The aim is to give young people a megaphone, to hear what they have to say about the future.

The dynamics of TEDxYouth@Basel in 2010 inspired us to replicate TEDxYouth@Basel on 20 November 2011 “by Kids for Kids”. The best ideas of TEDxYouth@Basel will be inducted into TEDxBasel which is planned for 21 November 2011. Are you interested in applying your talents to help us create these independently organised TEDx event?

By attending TEDxBasel, you can experience first hand what is currently possible to engage live and virtual participants and experience how effective and inspiring TEDx events are.
