This year, join us in Thinking Out Loud and pushing the boundaries of what we know and accept. Come and challenge the perception of what is possible


Since the conception of TEDxUQ in 2011, one element that remains and revels is our thrill in creating a platform to blur the lines between the cognitive and the creative; pushing the boundaries of human knowledge into the realms of the future.

Imagine a world where everyone kept their thoughts and ideas to themselves. Everything would grind to a standstill. Conversation and collaboration are the driving force behind innovation and change. A single idea holds the potential to influence multitudes, at a local or global scale. 

From self-driving cars to increasing concerns about the environment and international security; today’s society is one to talk about.
