What will the future look like? It’s a question that has fascinated thinkers and dreamers for centuries. But as we stand on the cusp of a new era, the need to reshape the future has never been more urgent. From climate change and technological disruption to political instability and social inequality, our world faces unprecedented challenges that demand innovative solutions.

At TEDxEindhoven 2023, we’ll be guided by designers and innovators from different fields who are all committed to creating a better future. They’ll share their bold ideas, cutting-edge researches, and inspiring stories to help us imagine a better tomorrow. We’ll explore the role of technology, the importance of building sustainable and resilient communities, and the power of human connection to drive positive change.

At a time of great changes and challenges we need a new perspective on what’s possible.
