Irrespective of age, qualification, loaction, status or income, each one of us has something to offer, and more importantly, each one of us has the power to bring about change, in whatever manner or magnitude. But what is of paramount importance, is the realisation of this potential, and actualising it. We salute the spirit and passion that drives people to work towards a better future for their community and not just for themselves. TEDxYouth@BBS celebrates those who had the courage and intent to do something for the community.
The theme for TEDxYouth@BBS is "Power of One - Be the Change", about how an individual has the power to make change in the society. The speakers are change makers who have, in their manner/field, tried to make a change.
