"TEDxYouth events happen all year round in schools and in local communities. Once a year, the TEDx community celebrates young people by hosting local events as part of our TEDxYouth Initiative. These events are designed to empower and inspire young people".
As a Youth organized event it is important for us that the range of age of our organizing team is 16-19, that way we can assure that the experience provided is empowering and inspiring, just as we wanted it to be for us. Together we want to provide you with an experience where you are going to learn, have fun and overall hear ideas worth sharing. Our team is made out of 16 youth leaders that come to The Netherlands from all over the world and together have decided to put up a TEDx event, we are all completely thrilled to host you in this year's event.
