After five successful editions, we are honoured to introduce you to the sixth edition of TEDx hosted by the University of Amsterdam (UvA)
The theme of the fifth edition of TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam will be “Re-Envision". The news stories of 2021 evoked a range of emotions. While certain moments made us proud, others made us concerned about our future. From the world of politics, science, natural disasters and technological improvements, these were stories that challenged us and brought us closer together. At this crucial moment in our history, we have begun navigating through a new reality. How do we see the future? We need each other to envision the different angles and question our ways of thinking since everyone’s perception of the world is limited to their understanding. At times, seeing things through a different lens opens the doors you haven't imagined existed.
OUR PRESENT & FUTURE
Ready to bring in hope, joy, ideas and solutions to benefit society. Re-Envision is our way of delivering an applicable and multidisciplinary guideline to "Re-Envision" our present and future. We would like to invite you to do so with us. Topics may include:
Are you passionate about a topic? Want to make an impact on your community? Interested in sharing your ideas with the world? We are hosting Pitch night! During this event, you will get the opportunity to present your idea in just 5 powerful minutes.
We just need you to answer this one question: How do you Re-envision the world?
A jury will then choose the winner, who can participate in our TED event in November and meet our renowned speakers personally.
So don’t be shy and come join us at CREA at 19:00 on the 11th of October, where we will end the night with a nice borrel.
The University of Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ largest university and one of Europe’s most prominent research-led institutions. The UvA’s history dates back from 1632 and has grown over the past centuries into a modern University with a leading reputation in the international world of science. The UvA fosters a state-of-the-art environment and has a large impact on society, which perfectly fits with the nature and spirit of TEDx events.
TEDx events are local editions of the American TED conferences. They are devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design united, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. The TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world, which makes the University of Amsterdam the perfect venue to do so.
