This week Blackfen School for Girls hosted its very own TEDx event on the theme of, ‘What’s the biggest problem in the world… and how can we solve it?’ I think the video speaks for itself.
TEDx events are independently organised TED Talks. Anyone can apply to organise one, and there is a special category for youth events – click HERE to find out more.
This is a great way to engage young people in the big issues of the world, develop their public speaking skills and organise a high profile event which boosts your department within the school community, and your school within the community.
Below I have attached our lesson plans for the project. If you’re interested, get in touch and I can send more details and resources. Here’s the launch video we made for the project.
