The First Edition Of TEDxUnilag Is Happening This Friday

by | Mar 18, 2015

With carefully selected speakers that have managed to break through the box in their respective fields, the Unilag independently organized event of the TED conferences, TEDxUnilag will be happening this Friday, the 20th of March, 2015 at the Julius Berger hall, University of Lagos, Akoka Yaba, Lagos.

The event, tagged: “Breaking Through the Box,” aims to look into topics centered around ushering young vibrant Nigerians (and people of the world) into a new thought dispensation about issues on creativity, innovation, and a conscious shift away from the conventional way of doing things.

The event is aimed at highlighting exceptional Nigerians who are doing just what the tag says; breaking through the box. By showcasing people who are being innovative in different fields, and finding ways to circumvent the seemingly unfavorable Nigerian environment, we hope to spread ideas, which generate curiosity, spark further ideas, leading to further innovation in different sectors of our economy, particularly among the gifted and industrious youth of our great nation. – Organizers

Attendance to the TEDxUnilag event is free and interested participants can apply here.
