The highlight will be 10 - 12 students sharing their ideas onstage. TEDxChiangMai organizers have already been working with some students since August as well as a few late additions. Creative Chiang Mai, the Chiang Mai University Science & Technology Park, Microsoft, and other organizations are supporting the event.
This Youth Event will be a pilot, an example, to demonstrate how relatively easy it is to organize a TEDx event and why there is so much magic about it (10,000 events around the globe organized by volunteers is an astonishing number and phenomenon).
A sample of the talks include “The Miracle of Thinking”, “Letters from Fate”, “Humanize your parents, Liberate yourself”, “The Thirst for More”, “Reading Between the Notes” and many more. We are certain you will find the talks inspiring and stimulating and good examples of how and what our youth are thinking about today.
The TEDx platform gives all students a global platform for their talks through the dedicated TEDx online channel for TEDx talks. Each talk is videotaped and uploaded to the TEDx Youtube site where people all over the world can view them.
For teachers and students, TEDx events also provide many opportunities to create learning experiences and could be one of the highlights of a school’s annual project based work. For students it is a great personal development.
Student volunteers will receive a certificate at the end of the program from the Chiang Mai University, Science & Technology Park confirming that they were volunteers for this event. Teachers and schools are invited to join in the organization and running of the event.
