The University of Sydney is once again partnering with TEDxSydney and TEDxYouth to spread innovative ideas.

TEDxSydney will this year be held at the International Convention Centre on Friday 16th June, with TEDxYouth - featuring speakers between the ages of 16 to 26 - taking place on the 6th September at the Sydney Town Hall.

Since 2012, the University of Sydney has been partnering with TEDxSydney, the annual event of ‘ideas worth spreading’. 

TEDxSydney is an offshoot of US-based TED talks, founded in 1984, which presents the world's leading thinkers and doers sharing their most important ideas in an 18-minute talk.

TEDx Youth

TEDxYouth@Sydney is made by young people, for young people, but with the eyes and ears of the world in mind. It provides a platform designed for young change makers, thinkers, innovators, activists, entrepreneurs, and go-getters between the ages of 16 and 26.
