TEDxYouth@TeAro is returning in 2020 – this is your chance to be involved!

TEDxYouth@TeAro 2020 is here! 

Last year was our chance to learn the ins and outs of what goes behind making an event as amazing as TEDxYouth@TeAro happen. Who knew that the google forms we filled out just a year ago would lead us to the amazing opportunity we have right now. Although we have this experience behind us we want to continue to grow alongside our new team in 2020 and help them create not only lasting memories but a good base of knowledge and new skills.

We’re looking for an applied group of young Wellingtonians who are ready for a challenge and passionate about organising TEDxYouth@TeAro 2020 alongside side us. Applications are now open and will close Friday 31st of January at midnight so make sure you fill out the form if you want to get involved!

TEDxYouth@TeAro 2020


We’re next: TEDxYouth@TeAro is back for 2019.

Last year, we asked: “What’s next?”. This year, we know: we are. TEDxYouth@TeAro is back and better than ever, at the helm of our former Associate Finance Director, Olivia Trass.


Haere mai ki TEDxYouth@TeAro.

TEDxYouth@TeAro has one goal: give young Wellingtonians a local and global platform to spread their ideas, in their own words.

We make this happen through the powerful worldwide TEDx movement. We organise and hold TEDxYouth events, which are like a full-on TED event, only organised by young people in our community. TEDxYouth provides an opportunity for personal and professional development for our organisers, a platform for our speakers, and an inspiring event for our attendees.

The difference between us and any other youth organisation is the live aspect. On our stages, young Wellingtonians get the chance to express their ideas without being hampered by society or context – the only limit is the TED Talk format. Our speakers get months of intense coaching and support before the event, but in the end, it’s their idea worth spreading.

We held our first event in 2018, and are currently in the process of organising our 2019 event. If you’d like to help us out, drop us a line:
