Do you have a great idea and want the world to hear all about it? Would you like to be the next TED speaker going viral? Then sign up now for our upcoming TEDxMaastricht Pitch Night!


Every year, we organize an evening where you can take the stage and pitch your idea for a TED talk. In 3 minutes, you will try to convince the crowd that your idea is worth spreading. If you manage to convince the audience, as well as our team, that you have what it takes to be the next TEDx speaker, we will invite you to our next conference in October 2017! Last year, two Pitch Night speakers took the stage during TEDxMaastricht 2016.


So, don’t wait, send your application before Friday 9th June. Mark your calendar for Monday 19th of June and keep an eye on your inbox to see if you’re selected!

‘A matter of perspective’

The sixth edition of TEDxMaastricht went and came in a flash -or so it seemed…- On 17 October 2016 we offered you an invigorating and mind-shifting day, which we hope sparked deep conversations and connections at regional, national and international levels.

Our curation team had selected an inspiring line-up of artists, inventors, explorers, medical pioneers and game changers who transformed their passion and ideas into concrete actions.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news or to revisit all the 2016 speakers!

TEDxYouth@Maastricht is a conference organized by youth, for youth, to inspire tomorrow’s world.

TEDxYouth is organized by students from United World College (UWC) Maastricht ranging in age from 16-19 years. The target audience of the conference is aged between 12-24 years.

Other schools in the region like Porta Mosana and the International School Antwerp also attend the conference.

Taken together, the students come from a variety of nationalities, different cultures, backgrounds and many different countries. They bring a very interesting mix of ideas, knowledge and experience to the table, and form an excellent breeding ground to talk about ideas worth spreading.

This makes our TEDxYouth@Maastricht event a great contribution to the Maastricht region and beyond.
