About this event
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.
