TEDx MAASTRICHT BRAINTRAIN: PUSH BOUNDARIESPosted by Jan Scheele on July 23, 2013 blog | News | | No comments
In cooperation with the Dutch Railways, TEDx Maastricht presents a unique initiative: the TEDx BrainTrain. The basic principle is to use the train as a platform for inspiring TEDx talks with travelers as public. Prior to the main event on September 4 at the Theater aan het Vrijthof, a TEDx Coupe will be created in the Intercity between Amsterdam and Maastricht on Sunday 1st and Tuesday 3rd of September.
In response to the so-called ‘Silent compartment’ in the Dutch trains, TEDx Maastricht has arranged the ‘Talking Compartment’. Goal: setting up a compartment where passengers meet and where conversations are held. The formula is simple and follows the general TEDx events; interesting speakers tell inspiring stories of up to 10 minutes. Between Maastricht and Amsterdam there is sufficient time for seven stories that inspire. Speakers voluntarily participate in this special project, but travel for free.
The BrainTrain is a unique cooperation for both TED, TEDx Maastricht and the Dutch Railways. The initiative is a unique opportunity, while the professionalism of both partners guarantees the realization of a high-level travel experience. Moreover, travelers are increasingly open to new concepts such as the Social Coupe. The expectations for the BrainTrain to that reason are high.
