Dublin to host TEDx talks aimed solely at young people

Cystic Fibrosis campaigner and journalist Orla Tinsley and exonerated former Death Row inmate Peter Pringle are among the speakers at the TEDxYouth event which is being held to coincide with Universal Children’s Day.

IRELAND IS SET to host its first TEDx event aimed squarely at young people.

Cystic Fibrosis campaigner and journalist Orla Tinsley and exonerated former Death Row inmate Peter Pringle are among the speakers at the TEDxYouth event which is being held to coincide with Universal Children’s Day.

The set of talks, called TEDxYouth@WestlandRow, will take place in the Science Gallery in Trinity College Dublin on 17 November. Organisers say the event will be designed to empower Ireland’s future leaders and ignite new ideas.

TEDxYouth events will be talking place around the world on the same date.

TED – Technology, Entertainment and Design – is famous for its inspirational and motivational talks by academics, politicians, sports people, designers, and anyone who may have an interesting idea to share.  TEDx talks are a spin-off event from the main TED organisation.

A broad range of people who are experts in their respective fields spoke at the TEDx talks in Dublin in September on subjects as diverse as guerilla gardening on Ireland’s ghost estates to where scientists get their ideas.
