About the event
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED has established TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) Our event is called TEDxYouth@AlFaseelRoad, TEDx Program:
What is a TEDx Event?
A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.
All TEDx events present multiple issues and a diversity of voices from many disciplines. After all, what’s the fun without a little variety? A TEDx event is organized by volunteers from the local community, and just like TED events, it lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community.
TEDxYouth@AlFaseelRoad is an independently organized TED event happening in Fujairah. TEDxYouth@AlFaseelRoad is a half-day event being organized by a team of enthusiastic teens, with an audience of about a hundred attendees. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
We aim to encourage and give a platform for youth to connect with one another as well as with other influential youth and adults, form links to make way for various collaborations on productive projects and to reflect on themselves and how they can add value to the world.
TEDxYouth@AlFaseelRoad is scheduled for 3rd November 2018.
Theme of our Event
Our theme is “Beyond the Boundaries”. This is because at our event we want to create a platform welcoming everyone regardless of their background or what they believe in. It emphasizes on the idea that boundaries often created by society should not limit you, in fact you should hold the power and courage to believe in yourself to push forward and go beyond these boundaries. At some point we all come across an exciting opportunity, a new path that might scare us but it’s up to us to push ahead past what’s pulling us back, let go of our inhibitions, and go conquer whatever it is that’s waiting for us. It’s time to buckle up, unleash our inner talents and make all those pending chalked out plans happen.
