In our forward-thinking and dynamic society where we are constantly pushing for progress, we are often constrained by common societal belief.
Inspired by the mission of United World Colleges to use education as a force to unite people in the hope of a peaceful and sustainable future, TEDxPearsonCollegeUWC is a full day event that brings speakers from near and far to share their ideas that contrast with that of the conventional, in the hopes of motivating our audience to take a step away from the collective opinion.
Join us for a showcase of revolutionary ideas that are being developed on your doorstep - united through their ambition for change. Take the step to challenge your preconceived notions and stand as an individual during our exploration of the flipside to the traditional perspective.
In addition to the talks, there will be lunch and refreshments provided, as well as supplementary workshops, such as debates, discussions and the Human Library project. This is a real networking opportunity for innovative and passionate minds looking to expand their horizons.
The event will be structured such that there is a live performance of the talks held in the Max Bell Theatre which is limited to a capacity of 100 and students must fill out a brief application outlining their interests. This will cost $12 to attend. There will also be a live showings of the talk in the Jane and Jack Matthews Room which will cost $8 to attend. The live showing price will still include access to all food, refreshments and workshops.
