x = independently organized TED event

Theme: Youth

This event occurred on
April 27, 2013
10:00am - 4:00pm ADT
(UTC -3hrs)
Saint John, NB

Our event is all about taking the youth of Saint John, some of whom are organizing the TEDx itself, and putting them in front of the world. Our city is old, and its population is aging, but under the politics of the adults is a growing youth subculture that needs only to be connected. By giving these young people a chance to connect and grow, we can do the same for the city we live in.
