Slide background 'FIREWORKS"

...Adventurers, entrepreneurs and freedom fighters

"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"

If you are over 18 and would like to attend this year’s TEDxYouth@Bath a great way to be really involved is to volunteer. We are going to need a lot of people this year.

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.

Yeonmi Park Telegraph article

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.

Welcome back!

I hope all of you have now settled back into the new term.  We have just started visiting schools for the assemblies to tell all the students about our line up.  We will be loading the full line up this week.  If you would like to apply for a ticket independently of the schools do get in touch – there are only very few available.

Watching Titanic made me realise…

In the Guardian on Tuesday 26 August 2014 our opening speaker Yeonmi Park talks about the huge effect that watching foreign films had on her when she was growing up in North Korea.  It was life-changing. Her story is extra-ordinary and she will be telling you all about it on November 5th.

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.
