About TEDx Universiteit van Amsterdam
Last year, the second edition of TEDx Universiteit van Amsterdam encompassed the theme of “Crossing Borders”. It included several subjects such as the political dilemmas the EU has been facing regarding the recent refugee crisis in Europe, a talk closely connected to the analysis of the MH-17 crash and a talk that focused on the societal factors which lead to high prevalence of mental health issues among young people. It included 7 speakers, a great number of volunteers and more than 100 attendees.
Due to its success a third edition of TEDx Universiteit van Amsterdam will be organized in 2019 by a new team with loads of new aspirations, ideas and ambitions.
