Event description



In 2009, TED created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@Jingshan, where x = independently organized. At our event, TEDTalks video and live speakers are combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

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 found speakers who are pursuing innovation in their particular field of study, and 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. We found people who have actioned projects, have conducted peer-reviewed research, are active in their pursuits (dance, music theater) and who want to share their idea to INSPIRE others to make change.

How do you play with the idea of invisibility?
