TEDxYouth@Maastricht: “Go beyond your own limitations”

Getting up bright and early for this year’s TEDxYouth@Maastricht was not a big deal: the team had chosen to host their 2016 event in the former Augustijnen-church in the centre of Maastricht, just a short walk from my home. That made it easy to be there with plenty of energy to make the most of their excellent lineup of speakers!


TEDxYouth@Maastricht: through the eyes of the organisers

Leaving our comfort zones can be a daunting experience, laced with fear, uncertainty, and ambiguity. However, the 2016 edition of TEDxYouth@Maastricht, held on the 12th of March at Rebelle in the heart of Maastricht, aimed to tackle this formidable task, and inspire the youth of today to step “Out of Bounds”, toward a brighter and more fulfilling tomorrow.


TEDxMaastricht 2015 exceeded the public’s expectations – Are you ready for 2016?

The TED survey evaluating the TEDxMaastricht 2015 audience experience and appreciation was filled by as many as 578 of the 1,000 visitors. The score tallied up to an excellent evaluation of 8.8 out of 10. This indicates that the whole day exceeded expectations, although this does not say that there is no room for improvement for 2016. Most visitors wrote down that they had a great and inspiring day and gave excellent feedback on going even bigger.
