TEDxUBC is a conference for UBC’s most fascinating students to share their ideas and visions with the university and with the world.

Held at the UBC Point Grey Campus, TEDxUBC provides ten student speakers, from a wide range of interests and backgrounds, with the opportunity to address an audience of over 800.  Each talk is professionally recorded and archived on the TEDx YouTube Channel.

Engagement opportunities are also made available throughout the conference, where community leaders, artists, clubs, and non-profits are invited to set up booths and presentations during the breakout sessions.  This provides audience members with the opportunity to engage with local organizations and student-led initiatives. Be prepared to be swept off your feet by the passion of the UBC community.
