TEDxDoncaster returns after the challenges of the global COVID 19 pandemic with our inaugural TEDxYouth Doncaster .This event will provide a platform for young Doncastrians to share ideas worth spreading and our theme will remains the same as before the pandemic hit . Our theme for TEDxYouth Doncaster is 2020 Vision. The event will focus it’s lens on how we want our society to look in the immediate and near future.

When we were planning TEDxYouth in 2019 we had no idea of what was to come in 2020 and the following sentence perhaps has more resonance now than it did back then. " The year 2020 proposes to be a year of unprecedented change both in terms of technology and humankind." So with that in mind we are looking forward to sharing the delayed TEDxYouth Doncaster 2020 on Sunday 5th September 2021.
