But first things first:

Let´s celebrate TEDxFlanders’ 10th anniversary together: “NOW”
Protected content
“NOW” is a call to understand the present moment in all its complexity.

The theme “NOW” is especially relevant as it is an opportunity to reflect on the world we are living in today. We look back on the past, our history and where we came from. Then we look forward to the future and reflect on what we want to do. However, it takes courage to be present in the here and “NOW”, because nothing else really matters.

This “NOW” event will take you on a journey with eight extraordinary speakers and two show-stopping acts from Belgium and around the world. The TEDxFlanders’ speakers are the most progressive thinkers, dreamers and doers of our time. They are here to inspire you with their stories. They come from diverse fields from technology and science to social change and sustainability. Our events are fully inclusive and open to people from all walks of life, so come and celebrate with us!

Since Protected content , local communities have been able to organise and coordinate their own TEDx events independently. The content and design of each event is also developed independently, hence the 'x' in TEDx.

Everything we do is driven by one goal: How can we best spread great ideas? Protected content
