TEDx LynnUniversity is an independently self-organized event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience.

The first theme of the TEDx series at Lynn University will be Innovation. This is because we are still in the pandemic, and we realize that we can’t continue to follow the conventional way of operating the world, nature is warning us, the war is still happening, etc.

We would like to set up this theme because university students are one of the most important generations to do something different. And the TEDx stage is a great channel to spread awareness of Innovation.
