Theme: Dare to Care

This event occurred on

Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh

Our world is currently grappling with numerous calamities and challenges. While the global community is on the brink of collapsing, if we, as the youth, manage to stand together in solidarity, any obstacle can be overtaken. It requires a considerable amount of effort to take action, but if we can ‘dare to care’, anything is possible.
This concept is what we hope to emulate in the TEDxYouth@Hyderabad 2020 event. With inspiring speakers who are experts in their domains, and performers that will enchant you with their art, this year’s event will be unique. Due to the coronavirus, the event will be virtual. However, this will in no way deprive the essence of TEDxYouth events we know and love.
