12th August is International Youth Day, designated by the UN in 1989 to highlight its work to uphold the rights of young people and seek their engagement and leadership. Something we at TEDxYouth@Bath thoroughly approve of! We wouldn’t even be running our event if we didn’t recognise the challenges – good and bad – that young people face in determining their place in the world and how they might change it. As we announce our speakers this summer, we hope you will see that we are trying to put together the richest and most varied programme we can. So why not mark International Youth Day 2016 by following us on Twitter or liking our Facebook page to be sure of the most up-to-date news about our event on 17th November?
