Montreal's Vigilant Global among companies who will help inspire teens
MONTREAL, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - TEDxYouth@Montreal, an
organization that holds events designed to empower and inspire young
people, announced its sponsors for its upcoming second annual event
geared towards youth aged 11 to 17. The event will take place on
November 16 and will coincide with both Universal Children's Day and
TEDx Youth Day where countless similar events will take place worldwide
"We are thrilled to see so many Montreal-area companies take an interest
in helping shape young minds. Their generous sponsorship together with
the work of our devoted volunteers make this possible," said Louise
Bucheit, Co-Producer and Co-Curator of TEDxYouth@Montreal.
TEDxYouth@Montreal brings together speakers from various fields and
subject matters but who share a common vision. This year's theme is
"The Spark" (watch the video) and each speaker will endeavour to inspire curiosity through short
"talks" to a packed audience.
"This event is an incredible opportunity to engage young people and
instill in them a love of lifelong learning. As huge fans of TED talks,
it was an easy decision to sponsor TEDxYouth@Montreal since we have
also sponsored TEDx Montreal in the past," said Arvind Ramanathan,
Co-Founder and Director of Vigilant Global.
The event will take place at l'Ermitage at Collège de Montreal on
November 16 from 1 - 6 PM. For more information on attending the event

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. As
part of many initiatives, TED has created a program called TEDx which
is a series of local, self-organized events that bring people together
to share a TED-like experience. TEDxYouth@Montreal, (where x =
independently organized TED event), will feature TED Talk videos and 15
live speakers. TEDxYouth@Montreal is an event for teens aged 11-17, our
future leaders. It is meant to spark inspiration, deep discussion and
connection in a small collegial group.
