“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.”

About TEDx

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.
