Event description
At TEDxYouth@AISHK, live speakers and TED talk videos will combine to spark discussion on issues encompassed in our theme, Pressing Pause.

About this Event

How often do you get a chance to press pause and reflect on your life and your actions?

Well if you are the average Hong Konger, it’s likely that life in the ‘city that never sleeps’ often gets in the way of doing so. This raises a few more questions. As Hong Kongers,:

Are we truly aware of the subtle or not-so-subtle consequence of our actions and inactions?

Do we play a part in unseen and unspoken-of social truths?

Do we take action and support causes we believe in?

We invite you to join TEDxYOUTH@AISHK to listen to speakers with an idea worth spreading and have broader conversations with the Hong Kong community. Our theme this year is ‘Pressing Pause’ which stresses the importance of taking time out of our busy lives to reflect on broader societal issues. The three central ideas of the event are Revealing Our Ignorance, Hidden truths and Taking action.

Speakers who will be sharing their ideas and insights include:

- Influencer and Content Creator Jlou

- Trail Running Champion and Domestic Helper Fredelyn Alberto

- David Begbie, Co-Founder of Non-Profit Organisation, Crossroads Foundation, aiding the global community in areas such as welfare, development and relief

- Influencer, Content Creator, Eating Disorder Activist and Actress Rebecca Leung

- Descendant of the first King of Gaya Confederacy and HKU history and politics student Joonsung Kim

What’s included?

- An opportunity to hear from some truly inspiring speakers

- An unreserved seat

- Light refreshments

- Photobooth to take photos with friends, family and speakers

About TEDx and TEDxYOUTH@AISHK

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@AISHK, where x symbolizes an independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@AISHK event, live speakers and TED Talk videos will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. TEDxYouth events are specifically oriented towards youth but we hope that with your passion, determination and inspiring story, we are able to inspire youth and adults alike!
