Today, young people are growing up in a world where the definitions of who we are, where we live and how we get things done seem to adjust and expand every day. It’s an exciting time, but can also be a confusing one.

This is an incredible opportunity for us to collectively ask ourselves where we are today and where we want to be tomorrow. We’ve got some great ideas to help you keep the discussion moving in between viewing sessions and to help you share your activation with the world!

TED will be curating a special playlist that includes youth-specific talks from the TED, TEDx and TEDEd libraries. TEDxYouth events held in conjunction with TEDxYouth Weekend will be invited to watch the playlist, and curating live speakers and performers of our own!
