TedxYouth@HaileyburyAstana is a pupil-organised conference that includes live speakers and is operated under a free licence of TED, a nonprofit organization whose slogan is “Ideas worth spreading.” The inspiring event was initiated and planned out by IB students independently as Haileybury Astana education encourages leadership and global thinking in pupils.
In June 2021, Haileybury Astana pupils organized a TEDxYouth@HaileyburyAstana event under the theme of "FORWARDS”. This theme was chosen to represent the way straight to the future, overcoming all the obstacles on the way.
During this fabulous event, three students from Haileybury Astana, Nazarbayev university students, health representatives and Dutch and German embassy representatives Andre Carstens and Holgar Kolley shared their experiences and ideas with the audience.
We believe that TedxYouth@HaileyburyAstana is an excellent addition to a wide range of co-curricular activities at Haileybury Astana, as the conference sparks important conversations about world issues and develops pupils’ public speaking skills.
Haileybury Astana is one of the schools that provide such programs, letting students create and organize their own projects like TEDxYouth@HaileyburyAstana.
