TEDxTeen New York 2017: How the Youth of the World Forges New Ideas


The TED Talks are known for exploring inventive new ideas from people the world over, but what about new ideas from the youth of the world?

According to their press release, the TEDxTeen New York 2017 Conference at the Playstation Theater (1515 Broadway, New York, NY) puts on stage a powerful global community of youth changing the world to make a positive statement for humanity.

​​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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
