Last year, TEDxYouth@BIS explored how small ideas develop into forces of action. Inspired from the event we began to to ask, is a singular action enough? How can we span generations, and create change for more of the globe? How can our ideas have a greater impact and extend beyond the individual? How can we implement systems so our ideas grow into sustained action?

TEDxYouth@BIS 2012 featured a suite of short, carefully prepared talks by students and members of the learning community, as well as performances of music and art, all oriented towards describing how to create sustained action. TEDxYouth@BIS 2012 aimed to foster new learning, inspiration and action - and, of course, provoke conversations that will continue to stimulate the creation of ideas.
