TEDx Eindhoven will open its doors on February 1, 2019, at the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven for a day-long event.
TEDx talks have sparked creativity and spread inspiring ideas around the globe. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TEDx is a locally conducted event that follows the principles of TED. This year at TEDx Eindhoven, speakers and spectators will together explore the topic “Human Tectonics“.
What is a TEDx event?
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers are combined to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, are self-organized. We are lucky that Eindhoven has its own TEDx event. On February 1, this year we would witness the third edition of TEDx Eindhoven.
Human Tectonics is the energy created when there is friction between two contrasting bodies/ groups/ people. This will shake things up, before they break through the cracks, spreading their ideas, inspiring, then finally coming back together again to renew the earth.
This is the theme of the 2019 edition of TEDx Eindhoven! An event full of speakers, acts and inspiration. On this day they will explore the subject of Human Tectonics.
Speakers at TEDx Eindhoven 2019
Nine speakers will do a deep dive into the world of Human Tectonics. What does it mean? Why exactly is the world changing so rapidly? By connecting various fields you will gain insight into the shifts that we see in our multicultural landscape. Whether this will be about the future of sport, race and politics or the freedom of journalism. They will share a glimpse of what’s happening in the world, in The Netherlands and in Eindhoven. Expect bold insights as well as personal stories that will tumble in your brain for a while.
