About The Event

TEDxYouth@Chennai is one of the TEDx events that happen all around the world in late November, around Universal Children's Day. The events are designed to empower and inspire young people.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences. The talks are meant to spark deep conversation and connections. TEDxYouth@ &Chennai is fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community volunteer basis.
