The world-renowned TEDxYouth event took place on the 16th of March in our school. It was also the first time that such an event was held in Seville.
The 14 young speakers (students from ISP schools in Europe aged between 11 and 18 years old) shared short talks in English presenting their ideas, opinions and experiences associated with the event’s theme “Young Voices, Big Ideas”, inspiring other young people from ISP schools and around the world.
Abryl M., a Year 12 student, represented International School Andalucía at the TEDxYouth@InternationalSchoolAndalucía event, speaking about “Are we aware that our existence is ephemeral? If so, why don’t we realise the value of time” in front of a live audience.
The students had an exceptional learning experience, experiencing full linguistic immersion and developing their communication skills, as well as critical thinking, leadership and confidence. In addition, along with the other activities that took place around this event, they were able to connect, share and have fun with other young people from our schools in Europe and make this an “experience that will mark them forever” as one of the students commented.
As part of ISP SCHOOLS we are very proud of these 14 students who have set the precedent for future TEDxYouth events, for their commitment, dedication and perseverance during these almost 6 months of preparation for the event.
We hope that other students will be motivated to participate and share their ideas in this very special event.
