Gulshan Campus A of The City School, situated in Karachi is the first ever O’level institution across all schools networks to have acquired the license to organize an independent TED event, titled “TEDxYouth@TCSGCA” that has been scheduled for 17th February 2023. The event is the series of talks by eminent personalities from all over the city on diverse topics covering all vital fields relating to today’s youth like entrepreneurship, technology, arts, inspiration, motivation and social service, etc. Our team endeavors at bringing diverse speakers with unique life stories, experiences, and different backgrounds to foster inspiration and motivation in our audience.

Our theme for TED focuses on ‘Generation Z’’. After the advent of Covid-19 the new normal changed for everyone including students, and adults. Adapting to this new normal is the necessity of time. Hence, the theme for this independently organized TED event aims to give the youth of our society an insight into how to manage their emotions well, how to become financially independent and keep a balance in life.
