At a TEDxYouth@SanAntonio event, middle schoolers, high schoolers and college students come together (with parents, educators and friends) to share imaginative and thought-provoking ideas for transforming our city and world. Activities showcase San Antonio’s unique culture, innovation and creativity to the worldwide TED community. #TEDxYouthSA
In person and online: Saturday, April 15, 2023
TEDxYouth@SanAntonio invites Youth and the San Antonio community to explore our theme of Climate Action, hear from 6 live speakers, and connect with organizations actively working on climate issues.
The event will be held at the University of Texas at San Antonio’s beautiful Buena Vista Theatre on the downtown campus. A livestream option will also be available. Discover opportunities to make a difference on Climate Change.
Students middle-school age and up are especially welcome — but anyone interested in exploring Climate Action is welcome to attend. You don’t have to live in San Antonio to take part and make a difference!
Registration is now open and the event is free to all attendees. Lunch, snacks, and soft drinks will be provided.
In-person attendees, please note:
- Students middle school age and up will have priority seating in the Buena Vista auditorium; we will simulcast sessions to the lecture hall next door.
- Please plan to arrive at 9:30 AM to check in.
- Free parking for attendees will be at the Cattlemen's lot a short walk from the theatre, or plan your Via bus trip.
- We will follow UTSA's COVID-19 guidelines; masks are currently encouraged but optional. We'll update ticketholders if anything changes.
Virtual attendees, please note:
- You'll receive a Zoom link when you register.
- Please install and test Zoom to ensure you are ready to go.
- Cameras are optional but welcome.
We’re actively seeking speaker applications for talks on Climate Action — especially from Youth! Art (visual, sculpture) and performance (music, poetry) proposals are also welcome. Head over to the SPEAK page.
We produce these events with the help of future-focused, generous sponsors. Get visibility and show your support for Climate Action and Youth Empowerment. UTSA’s Office of Sustainability and KLRN have extended outstanding visibility benefits to sponsors.
Community organizations and businesses are welcome to submit proposals for interactive activities in our Idea Lab!
We need youth volunteers to work as our event crew. Crew assignments include greeting attendees, check-in and registration, information and wayfinding, speaker rehearsal, catering staging and cleanup, and materials set-up and load-out. Educators: Get your students hands-on experience managing community events and help them meet some amazing people. Head over to the VOLUNTEER page to apply.
SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY: Attend a Volunteer Committee meeting to learn about key volunteer roles open to college students.
