Following the success of the TEDxGlasgow events over the past six years, we wanted to commit to developing something custom in response to the Scottish Government’s 2018 Year of Young People initiative, designed by and for young people from across Scotland.
The new standalone [email protected] event was launched to showcase the amazing talents of young people in Scotland, whilst providing them with a unique platform upon which they can share and access diverse and revolutionary ideas.
We welcomed 2000 young people to the SEC Armadillo on Thursday 31 May 2018!
Switch it up and step out of your comfort zone.
Consider the other option, explore new ideas and discover your full potential. This is the year of young people, so let’s seize this opportunity and celebrate our generation.
Meet the youth team
Lead and co-designed by young people for people. This is the youth team who will be supported by TEDxGlasgow mentors, Glasgow Clyde College, Glasgow Clyde Education Foundation and our other partners.
“We’ve benefited from a hugely receptive audience in Glasgow for our events over the past five years but we’ve always been very much more focused on a more adult audience. The 2018 Year of the Young People offers us an incredibly exciting chance to create a project that offers students a rich and ‘real life’ learning experience, as well as delivering a major event to a younger audience. We can’t wait to get started and invite all of Scotland’s youth to attend in 2018.”
Our Youth Partners
We’re very thankful to our incredible partners YOYP, Glasgow Clyde College, Glasgow Clyde Education Foundation, EventScotland, Glasgow City Council, SQA, JP Morgan, Edinburgh International Science Festival and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, all of whom have made it possible to run this awesome event.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED talk videos and live speakers are combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
This event is a local, self-organised event branded TEDx, where x stands for independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised (subject to certain rules and regulations).
Whilst TEDxGlasgow supports [email protected] this event will be run by a different team and supported by independent partners, including Scottish Government, Visit Scotland, the Glasgow Clyde Education Foundation and Glasgow Clyde College.
