Organize UvA's own Tedx event; a day full of inspiring speakers

Main Partners


TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam is one of the five main pillars in the academic domain of Sefa. In collaboration with the University of Amsterdam, Sefa organises a TEDx event; a day filled with brilliant speakers who inspire you through a suite of short, carefully prepared talks varied with thought-provoking videos.

The first TEDxUniversiteitvanAmsterdam event was held on Tuesday the 21st of September 2017 at the CREA Theather. The theme of the event was Think Big! and it hosted impressive speakers who deal with questions such as:

  • What does it take to survive on Mars?
  • Can technology be used to help us free ourselves from the saddest parts of the human condition?
  • How will 5G impact my life?
  • How will I travel in the future?
  • How can I slow down ageing and live a longer and healthier life?
