Autumn is the time of the year that our TEDxGhent team likes the most: we have had a fresh start after a productive year in preparation for our annual event, which always brings us lots of motivation and encourages us for new achievements. We feel content and rewarded as we had the opportunity to share our work with you, our audience. Most of our team has known each other for years and have developed a very organic relationship based on mutual respect and cooperation. We have different backgrounds and represent cultures from all over the world, but share the same passion in our attempt to bring the most interesting and unique ideas to you.
This year we devoted a lot of time researching and trying to find the right mix of topics and fascinating stories. Our fifth TEDxGhent edition ‘Celebration’ that took place on June 13, 2015 at one of our city’s premiere venues ‘De Bijloke’ gathered 19 engaging speakers and performers to explore issues such as strengths and weaknesses of a human body, demonstrated technological apps and ideas that were designed to make our world a better place.
Once more, the TEDxGhent 2015 speaker roster was great! You can enjoy all the talks here
Lieven Scheire – a famous Belgian comedian, a TV presenter, and a devoted TEDxGhent host for several years, moderated our 2015 journey with his brightly audacious humor.
We are immensely grateful to our partners who supported us in organizing this beautiful event, and especially would like to thank our main partner AXA in Belgium, and other structural partners: UGent, Carlton Hotel, TRYBOU, Paard Van Troje and De Bijloke.
And this is just the beginning… Join us in our next journey and we will show you the world through the lens that will let you sharpen your knowledge of this world, refocus your understanding, clarify the unknown, and reinvigorate the meanings of some fundamental ideals. Be prepared for TEDXGhent 2016 and save the date – June 18, 2016!
So, share, enjoy, and get inspired!
