Why TEDxYouth In Vegas?
Las Vegas lives in the heart of many as Sin City, a myth created by an industry selling a image. We are so much more than that: a city of dreamers who chose to make this neon desert our home. This is the positive vision of our city we must share with our youth. By hosting a TEDxYouth event in Las Vegas, we will be joining a global movement to inspire young people. We invite you to join us for our first TEDxYouth in Las Vegas. This year’s theme is Dream Big. . . THEN DO IT! Come Dream with us!
Where & When:
About TEDxYouth from TED’s site:
“TEDxYouthDay is a series of TEDx events happening all around the world coinciding with Universal Children’s Day in late November. These events are designed to empower and inspire young people.
TEDxYouthDay events present a combination of live speakers and TEDTalks to audiences around the world. These events vary widely in size, format, and theme, but they share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, and empowering young leaders.”
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 TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks 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.
This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
