    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@Montreal, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouthMontreal event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
