Connecting Through Change
After four successful editions, we are honored to introduce you to the fifth edition of TEDx hosted by the University of Amsterdam (UvA)
The theme of the fifth edition of TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam will be “Connecting through Change”. Change is an inevitable part of our lives, however sometimes it tends to be more drastic than usual, as the past year has shown us. At first, one can fear that change distorts our ability to stay connected with the people around, with the surrounding environment and with oneself. However, even though it poses challenges to our lives, the change can also provide an excellent opportunity to rediscover and reinvent connections between people and their environments, that is why we believe the change should be embraced. Therefore, TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam “Connecting through Change” conference will bring you inspiring ideas, personal experiences, unique stories and creative ways to stay (or become) connected through change, no matter how big or small.
Ready to bring in hope, joy, ideas and solutions to benefit society. Connecting through change is our way of delivering an applicable and multidisciplinary guideline of dealing connectivity during constant change. We would like to invite you to do so with us. Topics may include:
Would you like to be a sponsor?
We are looking to collaborate with firms and organizations that would like to be involved with a diverse audience from people directly linked to the University of Amsterdam to local non-academic spectators.
