In Bangkok, Gongju, Cairo, Faridabad, Budapest, Boston, Madrid, San Pedro Sula, Tokyo and more places around the world, young people will be gathering to watch TEDxYouth Weekend talks — curated from the TED, TEDx and TED-Ed libraries — and sharing insights and performances of their own.

How can you get involved?

1. Find a youth event near you using our event finder — some events still have space open.

2. Encourage a young person you know to become a TEDxYouth Weekend Youth Reporter. Have them fill out the form here.

3. Watch our TEDxYouth Weekend playlists, all centered on the theme “What Now?”

  • Life on the web. Are we safe on the internet? We’ll be exploring ideas behind viral videos, how we share information online and what it means to maintain privacy.
  • The meaning of “we”. What does it mean to be a part of a global community? And, how do we navigate our way through a world that is becoming more and more diverse?
  • Challenge the status quo. We will explore ideas behind prejudice around the world and its effect on gender, culture and race.
  • Short and fun! Ever wondered about dancing robots? Or, the best way to use a paper towel? These talks are for you!

4. Follow (and tweet) the action this weekend using the hashtags #TEDxYouthWeekend and #WhatNow.
