TEDxYouth@EEB3 is a unique platform for sharing ideas from EEB3 within our community and the rest of the world. The event is comprised of multiple presentations by teachers and students from our school, but external speakers are also welcome. Of course, all this would not be possible without the contribution of our diligent and dependable teams. Namely the Communications Team, the IT Team, and the Design Team. With each team working hard many months in advance, the event is guaranteed to be smooth and enjoyable for our diverse audience.

The theme of this year’s TEDxYouth@EEB3 event is “Cause and Effect”, an inspiring and broad theme that will no doubt be interpreted in a plethora of ways by the speakers. In pursuing a common goal of sharing ideas and bringing new perspectives from our community into the limelight, the TEDxYouth@EEB3 team hopes to spark conversation and provide food for thought to anyone who wishes to tune in. This can be done in-person or online, as the event will be broadcasted and uploaded to the TEDx Talks YouTube channel.

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxYouth@EEB3 event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
