TEDxYouth Frankston is a local, independently organised event. Our initial event took place in 2014 under the theme “CHANGING PERCEPTIONS”. The event is youth oriented and aims to bring together leaders, visionaries and thinkers to share what they are passionate about to inspire the next generation from Frankston, the Mornington Peninsula and beyond.
Our 2015 event theme and date will be announced mid January. The audience will include around 100 students aged from 15 – 18 and will be sourced from a number of the secondary schools in the area.
We hope to promote discussion and a platform where the attendees and presenters can learn from another and leave the conference driven to creatively improve our collective future.
ABOUT 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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.)
