About TEDxYouth@Singapore 2019: Future of Us
Themed “Future of Us”, we hope to educate and inspire youths to understand important issues that are prevalent in Singapore society. While the concept of change often appears daunting, we would like the youth to realise and understand that the beginning of progress is a small step that anyone can take. With a diverse group of speakers, each with expertise and passion in their respective fields, we hope that our lineup can catalyse thought and action amongst us, the youth in Singapore. In this age of disruption and flux, we believe that it is essential for one to continuously take part in both learning and unlearning, overcoming preconceived notions of one’s capacity as an individual. Through a thoughtfully curated list of talks, we envision a future created by the collective action of individuals empowered by knowledge and fuelled by passion to ignite change for the better.
About TEDx, x = independently organised event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised 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-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self-organised TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
