TEDxYouth@Armadale is an event which provides an opportunity for local young people to have their voices heard, to feel empowered, acknowledged and inspired by their peers.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x= independently organised TED event.
