Let’s Play Outside team will host the first @TEDxYouth@Braamfontein as the lead organizing volunteers.
TED is a global non-profit organisation founded in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment, and design are merged with the aim of spreading ideas through powerful talks. Independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Let’s Play Outside is an agency that specialises in youth culture and it’s development through organising talented youth and facilitating mutually beneficial relationships between youth and various stakeholders. The agency’s main objective is to ensure an authentic translation of youth culture and establish the development of youth talent within all their dealings and projects.
With this year’s topic being ‘Innovation to Us’, the first TedxYouth@Braamfontein questions what innovation means to African youth. The intention is to capture the DNA of what constitutes African innovation to the youth of today – and the goal is to reach a better understanding of where youth leaders of today are leading the future of the continent across various disciplines.
In the spirit of capturing the youth’s interpretation of innovation, the event will prioritise youth service providers to make up the majority of suppliers with the intention of creating a 100% youth organised event.
