TEDxDelft 2016

On Friday 15 April 2016, TEDxDelft celebrated its fifth anniversary in style with a great line-up of speakers, a large variety of side activities, and of course with the audience. Whether you were at the event in person, watched the livestream, or kept a close eye on the social media and blog, we hope you all enjoyed the interesting ideas that were presented to you. But it need not stop there. If you heard an interesting idea share it with friends, family and colleagues; keep celebrating the universal genius and keep spreading ideas worth sharing.

For those who missed out on any of the talks, or if there is simply a talk you want to watch again, the videos will be available on YouTube within five to seven weeks.

We hope everyone had a great time at TEDxDelft 2016, and look forward to seeing you again at our next events.
