Thank you for joining TEDxYouth@Basel held by the youth for the youth of Basel!
TED talks are all about spreading ideas and interest. Our theme “Be active. Make a change!” was a wake up call for the youth not just to show interest, but also to actively participate in shaping our future. The talks were linked to our theme in different and fascinating ways: They make you rethink your own perspectives and and will open your eyes a bit more to the difficulties we, as the youth are facing. During the event we gave attendees multiple opportunities to make a change and inform themselves about options on where to get active in Basel.
Julia has always a lot to do and TEDxYouthBasel has to fit in somewhere between her ballet practice and the European Youth Parliament, she’s participating in. Somehow she still manages to help us out with a lot of different tasks, like emailing venues or possible speakers.
Christian is always up and running, rushing from one meeting to another. He’s good with numbers and therefore leads the finance department of one of the biggest student magazines in Basel, Quint. As one of the head organizers of TEDxYouthBasel, he always keeps a cool head and is our “master of communication”.
Hannah is by far the most creative member of the team. She designs shirts, hoodies and bags as well as takes care of the layout of the student magazine Quint. Being part of the team from the beginning on, she is one of our head organizers and makes sure that the teams creativeness never dies, whilst taking care of our visuals.
