About this Event

A lot of time and effort has been put into planning this unforgettable event. TedX Youth Antwerp is a unique opportunity to take a break from your daily routine and experience something new. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx Youth Antwerpen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx Youth Atwerpen event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
