What does the world look like through YOUR eyes?

1 June 2022, Newlands College

This year, TEDxYouth@Paparangi aspires to answer this question. Our event theme of ‘Through My Eyes’ asks young people across Wellington what the world looks like through the lens they wear. Our theme describes how each speaker chooses to and has seen the society they live in, how their perspective has moulded them into the people they are and the future that they believe in. Join our community of people making change in their small worlds as we explore ideas around character, opportunity, taking action and so much more. Are you ready?
In our inaugural event, eight speakers will be presenting on the theme "Through My Eyes"

Cadence Chung - The impact of entrenched historical narratives in our modern age

Saoirse Lynch - Inaccessibility in the diagnoses of neurodiverse individuals

Mannfred Sofara & To’e Lokeni - The perception of prosperity

Russell Gill - How the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals are not your debate

Nora Quigley - The power of imperfect activism

Ryan Pugh - Teaching and technology - the link taken for granted

Zoe Dzapasi - The crushing reality of black exceptionalism

We look forward to seeing you on June 1st!
