After five successful events, TedxMoncton has decided to take a step back and mentor a youth committee to hold their very own TedxYouth@Moncton event. This event, sponsored by Birchmount, will be held by students under the mentorship of the TedxMoncton committee.
"We felt it was time for local youth to hit the stage and what better way to do it then under the established TedxMoncton brand." states Trish Dailey, a teacher from Birchmount and a member of the TedxMoncton committee .
This year’s speakers were selected to share their ideas on how to encourage "Sustainable Lifestyles". The sustainability of the planet or of our way of life is the most important issue facing future generations. It is important to give a platform for the next leaders to voice their opinions and hopefully influence positive change when it's so urgently needed.
Join us to see 8 youth speakers explore a broad range of ideas.
We would like to thank our amazing sponsors this year that have dedicated themselves to helping us hosting a successful event. Your vote of confidence in our youth speakers is something that the committee appreciates and words cannot express what it means to us.
