Our TEDx event will be hosted in the wonderful campus of the United Business Institutes: Chateau de Wiltz, in the north of Luxembourg. In contrast to our local and small event, our speakers are global and incredible. Like our last two events, we encourage attendees from all over Europe to participate and engage each other after some fabulous and thought-provoking talks and performances. We will finish this year's event with an epic talk & performance by one of the most remarkable, talented and young people our team has ever had the honour to meet. Come and see yourself who we are talking about... you all know her and have most definitely heard her ;)

One of the ways the association tries to reach its objective using humour is by awarding through The ” Y’A BON AWARDS” ceremony the “best” racist statements made by French public figures each year.
