Singapore, South West

The inaugural TEDxYouth@SingaporePolytechnic, or TEDxYouth@SP in short, is founded by a group of Singapore Polytechnic (SP) students with the goal of providing fellow schoolmates with more ideas and inspirations to empower them to achieve more with their SP diplomas. Hence the theme "Championing Change!"

Founded in 1954, Singapore Polytechnic is the first Polytechnic in Singapore. In the past decades, our amazingly creative and diverse student body has had phenomenal personal and career success in a broad range of pursuits, from gaining acceptance to top colleges, to building Asia’s fastest solar-powered race car, to winning the prestigious Golden Melody Award. In short, SP embodies the spirit of Championing Change!

Hence TEDxYouth@SP is a platform for the many Change Champions around us to share their inspiring stories and promote their empowering causes among a broad and diverse audience. In essence, the inaugural TEDxYouth@SP is a platform for the exchange of ideas on how to effect positive changes and push our society forward.
