TEDxTeen - Inspiring talks by incredible young people who are changing the world.

What It Is


Remarkable Disruptors

The Crazy Ones

These are just a few themes teens give voice to at TEDxTeen.

TED is devoted to ideas worth spreading. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED's spin-off of local, self-organized events encouraged us to develop TEDxTeen.

TEDxTeen is an event that takes place in NYC and London that gives extraordinary teens a place and platform to share their work, tell their stories and inspire others. Bright young minds ask questions, air comments, and spark conversations that spread from one small stage to all corners of the worldwide web via TEDxTeen Talks.

On Saturday, January 16, 2016, the We Are Family Foundation hosted the 8th TEDxTeen conference in London and focused the conversation on teens and their power to change the world. We’ll be announcing the next TEDxTeen New York conference soon and you’ll be able to Apply to be a Speaker or Request an Invite to join us live! Stay tuned for more updates on Facebook and Twitter.
