In 2009, www.ted.com created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

This year, ISS/LEVEL5 sponsored a new TEDx event called TEDxYouth@Jingshan, where x = independently organized. At this event, TEDTalks video and live speakers are combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Sponsors such as ISS, LEVEL5, Tencent, SIS Parent Support Association, MG Makerspace, FLFS Media, and many more, have come together to help create a world class event within the community.

The theme for TEDxYouth@Jingshan 2019 is Invisibility. There is so much that happens around us that is invisible. The influences of culture, politics, body language, neuroscience, feelings-- all these seem invisible. But there is also the other type of invisible, being invisible in a room full of people, in a school full of children, in a book full of faces. This invisibility has profound effects on the way we interact with each ourselves, others, and the world around us.

This year we invited eight adult speakers who are pursuing innovation in their particular field of study, and sixteen youth speakers who have a passion for making the world a better place. This event will focus on how we balance what we do for the betterment of humanity not just with scientific and design thinking but with empathy and connection to the global community. This powerful group of people want to share their ideas to INSPIRE others to make change!

License holders choose to host youth events particularity because TEDx provides a global platform for youth voice. Tosca Killoran, the License holder for TEDxYouth@Jingshan has been with the TEDx organization since 2011. Tosca is always amazed at the dedicated team of people who come together to volunteer to make the events happen. Every year she is excited by the unique kinetic energy of these events and the creative ways that students view their world.

Events that provide platforms for student presentation literacy are a fundamental part of contemporary teaching and learning. Youth that have ideas and can share them are at the core of our confidence in the future of the planet. Learn more about the event by joining us on February 23, 2019 at 1PM.
