TEDxYouth@SAS Turning Tides 2019 will be a night filled with delicious food, amazing stories from Singapore American School student speakers, and thought-provoking ideas on January 17th from 4:15 pm-8:00 pm. In previous years, we have had to limit the event to a 100-person audience, but starting this year we can accommodate more with our 100+ license. Twenty eighteen has been a year of rapid change from the #metoo movement to political upheaval. TEDxYouth@SAS is excited to share the essence of change through innovative talks centered on cultural, technological and societal tide-turning ideas.
