Our event, TEDxYouthOrdinanceRoad is the first of its kind in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria and the only TEDxYouth event in West Africa this year, holding on the 15th of November, 2014 at Titie Hotels, Off Peter Odili Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

It will connect youths between the age of 12 – 25 with world-changing ideas and stories that will cause them to journey outside the realm of present realities, propel them to dream of the future and act in line with their dreams under the theme Worlds Imagined. “Worlds imagined” is about the ability of youths to dream, imagine and see the future before it happens. With the current state of things in our world, it is important at this time that we talk about the importance of dreams in shaping the future and our roles in realizing these dreams.

Some of the objectives of our event are;
+ To connect youths with stories beyond the realm of the media
+ Encourage an intense digging into the fertility of imagination
+ Harness and channel the power of imagination into changing the world and
+ Give a reformative and restorative hope as a better world is forged.
