Be the change: TEDxYouth

Be the change: TEDxYouth

Ask a teenager, “What is your unique vision for the future?” It’s no surprise that local teens have answers to this question and want to share their thoughts, dreams, and plans with the community. As part of Princeton Public Library’s TEDxYouth event, “Imagine the Future,” on November 16, we have eight teens presenting talks about their passions and showcasing their visions for how their generation can change the world for the better.

Combining live talks with live music, a dramatic performance, and TED videos, join us as we celebrate our theme, "Be the Change." The TEDxYouth@PrincetonLibrary event is just one of many that will be happening around the globe for TEDxYouthDay, a series of TEDx events designed to empower and inspire young people coinciding with Universal Children’s Day in November. It is expected that there will be more than 100 TEDxYouthDay events in over 50 countries during the weekend of November 16-18.

Community composting? Fair trade support for world communities? Bullying? Body image? Revolutionary ideas?  These are topics near and dear to our speakers.

Register to attend TEDxYouth@PrincetonLibrary on Friday afternoon, November 16. The event is open to community members of all ages. Activities begin at 3 p.m. and will wrap up at 9 p.m., with a post-event party continuing until 10 p.m. Tickets are just $10 for students ages 13-19 and $20 for adults over the age of 20. All are welcome to attend. Dinner and snacks, plus the post-event party, are included with the price of this ticket. Be prepared to be delighted, intrigued, educated, and inspired.
