TEDxCollegeOfEuropeNatolin: (When) It’s Up to You!
A group of students from the College of Europe, Natolin are organising a TEDx event entitled ‘(When) It’s Up to You’ which will take place on campus on 6 April. It will feature a diverse group of innovative thinkers from many different walks of life who will each present a talk on ‘choice’ from a different perspective. One of our very own Natolin students will also be given the opportunity to join these speakers to present their interpretation of ‘choice’.
