TEDxYouth@Tehran is part of the TEDxYouth initiative by TED. On and around the time of Universal Children’s Day, several cities and communities host a TEDxYouth event. While each event is different in format, size and theme, they have a shared vision: inspiring creativity, igniting innovation, and empowering the youth. TEDxYouth@Tehran is based on a central premise that every young person is the captain of their destiny, the master of their life. They need to take responsibility for their life, be independent thinkers and explore their imagination.
