TEDxYouth@LBIS is bringing, for the very first time, a TEDx experience to Le Bocage! As a completely student-organised event we aim to to inspire and give a stage to the youth of Le Bocage through our selection of TEDTalks videos, combined with live speakers to spark deep discussion and connection. We look to engage the entirety of the school community from parents to teachers to students with ideas that are a novelty, informative and like a true TEDx talk, entertaining and thought provoking. Join us as we unearth local voices with a distinct Mauritian flavor and give them a platform to share their ideas with the rest of the world!
