Information for Parents and Guardians

Nothing is more important to us than the safety of everyone attending TEDxYouth@Perth, especially young people aged under 18.

TEDxYouth@Perth is fully committed to best practice in child protection. You can read our policy here. All volunteers at the event have a valid Working with Children Check. Detailed information will be provided shortly before the event and on the day of the event.


Email  Whilst we do need the name and age of each attendee, you are not obligated to provide contact details for your children: you can instead use your own email address. It is a license requirement from TED that they directly email every attendee asking for a simple 0-10 score of their experience. TED then destroy these email addresses. Other than this we will never share your email address with anyone else.

Data  There is no obligation to provide emergency contact details, health information, access requirements or dietary requirements, but this information will allow us to best look after the attendee. We will only retain contact details from adults when explicit permission is provided, or as required by law. All other personal data will be destroyed one week after the event. 

Images  All talks are uploaded to TED’s YouTube channel, including audience shots. If an attendee shouldn’t be filmed they need to sit towards the rear of the auditorium.


Children aged 13 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. It’s fine to drop young people aged 14 and over at the Theatre and not attend yourself.

Buying on behalf of young people is great: good for you! Tickets will be emailed to you. You’ll need to give the attending young people their tickets. Tickets come as a PDF: printing them off is easiest.  

If you are aged 30 or over, sorry, you may not attend TEDxYouth@Perth without an accompanying young person aged 21 or under.

Tickets are available here.

Your child's safety

Health  If your child is attending without you, at purchase there is the option for you to provide relevant information about their health and emergency contact information. This information will be destroyed immediately after the event. TEDxPerth is nut aware, but cannot guarantee that the event is nut free.

Safety  Child protection officers, all full-time teachers, will be present at the event and easily locatable for children needing support. 

ID checks  With the exception of children aged 13 and under who will be accompanied, all attendees will need to provide photo ID at registration at the start of the event.
