‘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!

This year, our TEDxMaastricht Pitch Night took place at De Brandweerkantine in Maastricht on Monday 27th June. (Read our blog post!)

Our annual Pitch Night was the perfect opportunity for those of you who had a great, inspiring and mind-shifting idea to win the chance to be selected for our main TEDxMaastricht stage. A chance not to be missed!

Invitations for our Pitch Night are closed for now. We will let you know in time when our 2017 Pitch Night will be so you can send in your ‘idea worth sharing’ for our curation team to evaluate all applicants and give those pitchers selected the possibility to present a 3-minute sneak preview of their idea. The speaker(s) who  will receive the most votes from our jury, as well as the audience,  will earn a high chance to be invited to join our main stage at our main event in 2017!

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.
