TEDxUNBSaintJohn is a multi-disciplinary event that allows some of the most innovative and imaginative students to be in the same room. This conference-styled event is the first of its kind at UNB Saint John, and through the various speakers and performances, we hope to create a platform that allows for the connection of these minds. By reaching into different pockets of the community, we hope to connect the city of Saint John in a way never before seen, in order to facilitate creativity, inspiration, and idea.
