Who said curiosity killed the cat? Curiosity is at the beginning of all ideas: ideas for change, ideas that solve, ideas that lead. In fact, it was probably curiosity that took cats to the top of the Internet food chain.
Held in partnership with TEDxSydney at Sydney Opera House, TEDxYouth@Sydney brings together young curious change makers, thinkers, innovators, activists, entrepreneurs, and go-getters between the ages of 16 and 26 to share ideas worth spreading.
We’re excited to partner with TEDxYouth again in 2015, to encourage curiosity at every level.
Speakers and performers
TEDxYouth will be an all singing, dancing and thinking spectacular. The TEDxYouth stage will feature a world champion, an astronomer, and an economist, along with our own fashion entrepreneur Law/Commerce student Margaret Zhang and Student Representative Council President Kyol Blakeney and more. The audience will also hear a selection of mainstage TEDxSydney speakers live via simulcast.
