The theme of this year's TEDxYouth@Seattle event is TOGETHER. From COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter Movement, national disasters due to accelerating climate change, and a divisive upcoming election, 2020 has been an extraordinarily significant year. While we may be physically separated, TEDxYouth@Seattle wants to bring people TOGETHER during this difficult time. We are all a piece of the puzzle, and when we come together as individuals, we form the bigger picture. Our mission is to share youth voices that have worked to better their community, and the world, in the face of a challenging year.
Due to the coronavirus health crisis, this year's TEDxYouth@Seattle event is completely remote. This means no tickets, no seat reservations, no need to even leave your living room. The episodes will be released every few weeks on all of our channels. The first episode will be will be released on October 27th, the anniversary of the first TEDxYouth@Seattle event.
The first few episodes will include interviews of last year's speakers, to see how their lives have changed since their Talks in 2019. We will then introduce our new youth voices for 2020. We are beyond excited for the event this year, and we cannot wait to share it with our community!
