Theme: Evolving Change

This event occurred on

Iwo, Osun

The question of what the Generation X (those between the 90's and the Twentieth Century) would be known for in History is often found on the lips of those who have had reflections. It is therefore imperative to explore the growing mind of those who are creative and have constantly sharpened their ideas amidst the growing impatience in our locality and economy.

The Truth - Lots of young minds have the potential to make changes that matter in the society but most are without the impulse from those who can help harness these.

TEDxBowenUniversity will explore bridging the evolving generation and those who have been tested in order to get a rippling effect in making the positive changes we seek as individuals and a nation of the world.
