TEDxYouth@Upanga: “CHAIN REACTION”
March 21st, 2020 - 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
LOCATION: INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF TANGANYIKA ELEMENTARY CAMPUS
TEDxYouth@Upanga is an independently organized TEDxYouth event that will take place for the fourth time in Upanga, Dar es Salaam on March 21, 2020. We want to break down barriers between the next generation of changemakers, inspiring them to go further and dream higher. Due to the unlimited possibilities the next generation holds, the theme for our event will be ‘Chain Reaction’.
TEDx, x = independently organised event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED upholds the ideal of sharing ideas that are worth spreading. That is why they created the program ‘TEDx’. TEDx is a program of local events organized independently of TED, but within TED rules and guidelines. Our event is called TEDxYouth@Upanga, with the ‘x’ signifying that is independently organized and the ‘Youth’ signifying the audience will be Tanzanian youth. At the coming events, we will hear from live speakers and online TED Talks that will provoke debate within the audience. Since the program’s inception in 2009, there have been over 10 000 events and 50 000 talks given across the world. We count ourselves lucky to have joined such an elite group.
