#graduaTEDtalk

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, millions of students won’t have the opportunity to be honored at an in-person graduation this year. However, billions of us can still celebrate these students online. TED invites all members of the class of 2020 to record and share a #graduaTEDtalk - learn how to participate. Let's light up the internet with the hopes, dreams and ideas of the next generation.
