We are delighted to announce that St George’s will be hosting our second TEDx Youth event on Friday 15 March 2024 following our inaugural event last year.

A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-style talks and performances are shared with the community. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently. Our TEDx Youth event offers us an opportunity to create a gathering in our community that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The day will be filled with intellectual exploration, engaging discussions, and a celebration of the curiosity that propels us forward. "Voices of the Future" is not just an event; it's a call to action, an invitation to collectively shape a tomorrow that is brighter and more connected.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
