TEDxUNC is an annual conference held at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that brings together innovative thinkers from around the U.S. and the world to discuss their approaches to some of humanity’s fundamental concerns. Their creativity stems from linking resource networks, exploring across disciplines, transgressing cultural boundaries, and seeking simple, tangible solutions.
