Youth Speakers Sought for Lincoln TEDx

A call has gone out for youth speakers to participate in a TEDxYouth event in Lincoln on Saturday, Aug. 19.

The event will offer a platform for youth who are thinkers, visionaries and learners to come together to be inspired and have the opportunity to inspire others.

TEDxYouth@Lincoln is a local, independent event striving to re-create the unique experience of TED, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers meet to share what they are most passionate about.

At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDxYouth@Lincoln is to foster and spread great ideas.

The format will be a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects relating to the theme “What Now?” to foster learning and inspiration.

Interactive activities will provoke conversations that matter. The theme “What Now” is broad and can relate to any number of subjects – technology, education, the humanities, culture, society, the list goes on. What is your idea to change the world – or at least reframe someone’s perception? We want to know! For details, go to:
