Discover how the next generation of big thinkers will change our future

Before TEDxSydney celebrates its tenth birthday with the theme of ‘legacy’, this event at the Seymour Centre will focus squarely on the future. Structure around the theme ‘cusp’, the speakers for TEDxYouth@Sydney, who are all under the age of 30, will bring their experiences and knowledge to discuss the actions, ideas and players present in a society on the precipice of change.

Each speaker will use their expertise in creative, scientific and social justice fields to lay out strategies that bring positive change to our society in the coming decades. The line-up includes Wiradjuri woman Kirsten Banks who’s an astrophysicist and science communicator; video game developer, mentor and equity advocator Ally McLean; and 17-year-old Connor McLeod, an invaluable player in the campaign for the introduction of Australia’s first tactile banknotes.

Like TEDxSydney, this will be a insightful day of talks, but set to a slightly shorter schedule.
