"Fantastic day today. In 11yrs of teaching it was the most
inspirational event I have ever been involved in."
"Oh my god it was amazing!
It really changed my view of the world"
TEDxYouth@Bath is back! This year’s event will take place on November 5th at Komedia. We are delighted to welcome a host of extraordinary speakers for a thought-provoking and exciting day of ideas for 16-18 year olds.
TEDxYouth@Bath is entitled “Fireworks” and we will be looking at Freedom and Forgiveness, the Future of Digital, Local/Global Responsibility and Entrepreneurship.
As usual our speakers are from all walks of life and will be discussing a wide range of subjects and the international flavor of this year’s conference is very exciting.
The speakers include adventurers, entrepreneurs and an author and chef.
We also have stories of extraordinary survival from 20 year old Yeonmi Park who defected from North Korea aged 13 and Iby Knill, a 90 year old Auschwitz survivor.
The main auditorium will host the young people and these seats are now all taken. The balcony will be offering seats to all the many people (of all ages!) who want to be a part of this very special day. Tickets will be available from September.
This year we will be hosting a series of talks with wonderful speakers in the morning and in the afternoon we will be running workshops in the style of a World Café for the students only.
Take a look at the attached film to find out how we have grown over the years.

So for those of you who don’t know – Yeonmi Park has this week been voted one of the BBC’s 100 women of 2014. She was with the BBC a lot this week and as well as being interviewed for the 100 Women, she also joined Radio 5 live and Newsnight. We could not be more proud of her joining us.
We have been in touch with all our wonderful speakers this week as they prepare their talks with us – I am humbled by their commitment to our event. So exciting – see you Wednesday.
We are so pleased that there was a lengthy article about our keynote speaker Yeonmi Park in this weekends (04/10/14) Saturday Telegraph Magazine. What a heartbreaking and powerful story. We can’t wait to meet her and hear her tell it. Don’t forget that we will be live streaming the event directly from our website so you can tune in to hear it live.
Just to let you know that Rob really enjoyed the day at Tedx. Rob has been very depressed recently. He really was inspired by the day and is showing signs of wanting to change his life. The seeds have been sown, thank you
By bringing it all together you have helped inspire a generation, and I’m sure I’m not the only member of the audience who left that auditorium feeling a greater sense of purpose and motivation to positively impact society and to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
