A TEDx-like platform for young people to organise and attend talks, events, and conferences with Creative Confidence Champions.
Young people invite Creative Confidence Champions to give talks at a conference which is recorded, either video or audio, and posted on the Creative Confidence Conference platform where other events and talks will be available.
Conferences are organised and run by young people.
Creative Confidence Champions can be anyone identified by the committee - other young people or adults - anyone who have shown Creative Confidence and has an interesting, inspiring story to tell.
Maybe it is possible to slot into the already successful TEDx conferences - maybe conferences can be held worldwide with the theme of Creative Confidence organised by young people (I'm not sure if this would be possible or allowed though?)

Process / how to build it up:
1. Introduce young people to the concept by letting them curate a Creative Confidence list on the TED website. This might be in a school setting (or a few different schools) to start of the project.
2. These groups can then nominate speakers and record (audio or film) and upload it on a Youtube Channel. This can be on a small scale - eg per year group. This can either be outside speakers or other young people eg from the class or school.
3. This can culminate in an (annual?) conference event organised by the students. Students from other schools can be invited, and content can be uploaded to a youtube channel or special site.
- How do we ensure that the voices of both extroverts and introverts are heard?
- How can we add a level of interactivity at the conferences to get engaged into the topic further?
- Could work well at high school or university level
- Not a high profile speaker event - goal is to get local voices speaking about creativity in different (often unexpected) fields
- Students are engaged in deciding on topics and speakers
- Conferences could be streamed live
