We warmly invite you to join us for a collection of inspiring TED talks given by a host of amazing speakers from around the world. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. A TEDx Talk is a showcase for speakers presenting innovative, well-formed and challenging ideas in under 18 minutes.
Our event is themed around the concept of 'Louder than Words'. Divided into four chapters; each tells a compelling story which informs and inspires and shines a light upon the key issues we are living through in this increasingly globalised world. 16 speakers will take the stage to share ideas around climate change, social injustice, digital innovation, and well-being. Our line-up comprises of school students and adults, with some speakers travelling from as far afield as; the USA, Canada, India, and Switzerland to share their stories, ideas and passion. We are proud that three of our own students, Gwen, James and Mya are talking at the event.
