British School of Bucharest is organising the first edition of TEDx Youth@BSB, a teen-led online event open to students from all international and state schools across Romania.This event will take place on 28th April and will bring together speakers to share inspiring stories and ideas with their peers while promoting youth initiatives and global cooperation.
TEDxYouth@BSB is an event organised and hosted exclusively by students which makes it even more special. The team involved in this project has done everything from choosing the theme, finding speakers and promoting the event, which conveniently reinforces the conference’s theme of ’empowered youth’.
The event will be transmitted online on, through live stream on TEDx Youth@BSB – British school of Bucharest and a line-up of eleven speakers will introduce the audience to current topics and create an engaging online experience. Students prepared their speeches around subjects of top interest like climate change, personal development and self motivation, sports, but also the role of history or art in our lives.
,,Ever since I aspired to create a TEDx event in my School and in my home town, I knew that the planning and organisation of such an event would go above and beyond a 17-year-old’s expectations. After getting the official licence to hold such an independently organised TED event at the British School of Bucharest, we managed to create an event which would not be restricted by COVID-19 health measures nor communication difficulties due to distance learning. Despite the unconventional online livestreaming means through which the TEDx will be taking place, the Student Executive Team is thrilled to present to you an event bound to reaffirm the extent to which our generation is ‘empowered’, says Laura Ionescu, Organiser of TEDxYouth@BSB
‘We are extremely proud that a team of our students got involved in this project, proving that courage, creativity and determination have no age or limit. This event is a great opportunity for anyone to meet the next generation of leaders and innovators and better understand their perspective on this year’s theme’, says Philp Walters, Headmaster.
Registration to the event is available until 26th April.
