By dreaming big, they are paving the way for a future filled with hope, innovation and transformation. This event has once again demonstrated that when given the opportunity, our students can lead the way in making a positive impact on the world.” 

 At the heart of the TEDxSunmarke event is TED’s mission to spread ideas—a global platform that supports individuals in sharing their insights through short, powerful talks. TEDx events are independently organised but follow the same principle, fostering learning, inspiration, and wonder and provoking conversations that matter.
