On November 17th, TED-Ed Weekend is going to be celebrating students around the world who “Show up and speak up!” And here at TED-Ed, we’ve been busy developing ways to include everyone who will be watching remotely. Read on below to learn about how you can join the audience from anywhere in the world!
You can WATCH with your Club or from home
1) Join the fun by watching TED-Ed Weekend in real-time via YouTube Live! If you haven’t already, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and turn on notifications so you’ll be alerted when we’re live! Can’t watch in real-time? No problem. The stream will stay up for 2 weeks following the event!
2) SIGN UP NOW to be part of the brand new TED World Theater! This is your chance to be a shining face in the crowd at TED-Ed Weekend, and potentially engage with speakers, guests and audience members from the TED stage. Even if you can’t be at TED-Ed Weekend physically, we want you in the room virtually. If you’re interested in participating, sign up here.
Please note: if you’re under 18 you and your parent or guardian must fill out this photo release form to participate.

Take ACTION (during or after) TED-ED Weekend
Participate in this year’s “Show up and speak up!” theme by sharing your voice and taking action.
1) Get the motivation you need to start that project! Our Ideas into Action blog series, will feature student entrepreneurs, artists, activists and scientists explaining how they went from dreaming about taking action / making a change / creating something, to actually doing it. Stay tuned on Instagram to catch each interview!
2) Tag #TEDEdWeekend in a picture or doodle about what you #showupandspeakup for. We’ll share some of your responses in our feed and tag you back.
