Granville Island Vancouver
TEDxYouth@GranvilleIsland is the first TEDx youth event hosted from the iconic and beautiful community of Granville Island. Known for its reputation as Vancouver's premier cultural hub, Granville Island's unique charm is augmented by its rich and diverse artistic, culinary, and maritime history. These various facets connect together to form the island's distinct identity.
In the spirit of the community it is hosted in, TEDxYouth@GranvilleIsland explores the big ideas and questions relevant to young people today through interesting and diverse perspectives from all walks of life. This event recognizes the value of the ideas and answers young people have in local, national, and global conversations, and aims to provide a platform for the youth to share their thoughts to a greater audience.

Our theme for this year is "CONNECTIONS".
The global pandemic has allowed us to recognize the importance of making meaningful connections and sharing out-of-the-box ideas with our communities.
The idea behind our event is to connect individuals and to act as a catalyst for youth to turn thoughts into inspiring action.
