Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam

TedxYouth@SeaViewRd aims to target a younger demographic. A demographic that prepares for change; in technology, mindsets and views to prepare for what is to come. Our goal is to raise questions and plans to accommodate for what the future has in store through the sparking of conversations and connections within ourselves.

Join us on the 25th of June, 2022 from 12.30 pm to 6 pm for a day filled with amazing speakers, talented entertainment and thoughtful discussions. We will have 9 speakers and 2 performers alongside some games and discussion groups. Light lunch will be served alongside refreshments throughout the event.

The question "What Now?" to is special us. It signifies the uncertainty of the future, the vast possibilities we may face and the ways in which we can achieve success; from within ourselves to a global scale. We don't know what lies ahead, but we strive for a promising future. We, the youth, need to sit down, reflect and actively plan the best way forward. Hence, asking ourselves the question . . . "What Now?"
