TEDxVenlo, the TED affiliated event that will take place for the 5th time this year, has announced its theme as ‘Back in the Future’. This was announced by the organisation behind the event today.

“The future is always on-stage at TEDx. Especially this year, with our five-year anniversary, we will take our guests into the future. We have a program full of speakers who are lightyears ahead of their time with innovative ideas”, states the board of TEDxVenlo.

TEDxVenlo is affiliated with TED, a is a nonprofit organization devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. TED organises conferences worldwide where speakers host short so-called ‘TED Talks’ that specialise on a broad range of subjects, such as technology, education and design.

Speakers TEDxVenlo 2018
Speakers for TEDxVenlo were selected over the past few months through so-called pitch nights that were at the Venlo stadskantoor and Universiteit Maastricht Campus Venlo. Speaker for TEDxVenlo 2018 will be announced over the coming months.

Coaches TEDxVenlo 2018
All speakers will be guided throughout the process by a team of coaches, one of whom is Loes Keijsers. Keijsers was recently awarded the Best Teacher Award for her job at Universiteit van Nederland.
