Since Brazil's educational system does not encourage us to be open-minded nor to embrace diversity– whether it is religious diversity, cultural, racial or ideological, many students of Colégio Israelita Brasileiro (CIB) often forget about their privilege and do not understand that we are responsible to make change, for we believe education is the most powerful weapon to reach that.
With this TEDxYouth Event, we aim to raise awareness on important topics, such as social inequality in different ethnical backgrounds and issues on education as well as to empower youth to become leaders and direct agents of that change. The topics of the talks were meant to embrace ideological diversity and curiosity in global affairs that have been impacting our countries and cities. Therefore, the speakers were young students who are incredibly interested in exchanging ideas with other bright young individuals to make this world a better and more inclusive place to live in!
