Scotland was once a well known beacon of progressive thought and home to many great inventors and at TEDxYouth@GeorgeIVBridge we still believe this is the case. The aim of our event was to demonstrate to the young people of Scotland that Scotland is still the home of progressive thinkers and change makers and they too can make their mark on the world at large. Throughout the day we lined up an array of industry leaders and charismatic speakers to extol their thoughts, learnings and advice in an environment conducive to inspiration and discussion.
