What is TEDxUNBC?
x = independently organized event.
TEDx events are self-organized, local programs meant to bring people together to share in a TED-like experience. TEDxUNBC all started January of 2017 on the campus of the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, BC. TEDxUNBC is the only program of its kind this far north and the our plan is to grow with each passing year. Our team is dedicated to the spirit of ideas worth spreading, and it is our goal to inspire, stimulate and create discussion through high-impact talks in our home town.
Our talks are based on the concept of dispelling misconceptions. In many aspects of life there are generally held beliefs which are not always correct. For TEDxUNBC's first ever event we will help to dispel some of those ideas. In our theme of dispelling misconceptions we hope to inspire the ideas: of not taking everything at face value; and digging deeper for the truth.
