What's happening?

TEDxYouth@NovaSchools is an event that will take place in NOVA International Schools, on November the 14th 2015. It is a full day conference on the topic of Future! The topic is broad, however that leaves space for debates and an influx of ideas from multiple fields, such as molecular biology, law, and youth activism! It is an independently organized event (more below) by students from NOVA International Schools, and it is filled with lectures from various speakers who will be gradually revealed. The event is private and prospective participants will need to fill in a short questionnaire.

What's "TED"?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18minutes or fewer) delivered by today's leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED's annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a "wish," or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

ok, so what is TEDx?

TEDx, x = independently organized event 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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
