Lifelong Learning with UCCI: TEDxUCCI

Ideas worth spreading are coming to the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) as it prepares for its second annual TEDx event. This locally producer TED event will focus on the theme of Future Vision. Topics will range from new energy sources to nutrition, with each talk hitting on issues that impact the Cayman Islands.

One of the presenters at the event will be the students of UCCI’s performing arts programme. The students had discussions that focused on dealing with homosexuality and transgender issues in a conservative community. Through their discussions the students composed an original song that will be performed during TEDxUCCI.

Persons interested in participating in TEDxUCCI will need to apply online. TEDxUCCI takes place Saturday 19 March.

Saturday 19 March
10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
