TEDxUCCI 2016 will the third event offered by UCCI during the 2015-2016 academic year. In November, TEDxUCCI Youth simulcasted an event from New York City and made it available free of charge to local high school students. All three TEDxUCCI events were hosted by UCCI and sponsored by “PhD Sponsor” The Ministry of Community Affairs, Youth & Sports and by Foster’s Food Fair.


Hosted by the University College of the Cayman Islands, our vision is to inspire people to step out of their comfort zones, think innovatively, and exchange ideas fearlessly.
