TEDxYouth@ColumbiaHeights will launch its first ever TEDx Youth event on November 17th 2012 at the Gala theatre from 9 AM - 12 PM. Our theme will be "Dream Big...then do it!". Keep updated by liking us on Facebook!
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 TEDxYouth@ColumbiaHeights, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@ColumbiaHeights 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.
We're committed to extending the TED experience to youth in Washington, DC. The realization of the event is impossible without the support of generous sponsors and partners; we'd like to thank all current and future sponsors for their kind support.
TEDxYouth@ColumbiaHeights is a volunteer organization of committed TEDsters and thought leaders. We believe in the force of great ideas to change lives and our mission is to extend the TED experience for the benefit of youth in the DC area by highlighting exceptional people and creative works, connecting people across disciplines, creating conversations and driving action. Get involved by volunteering or nominating speakers. Contact us at [email protected].
