We feel privileged to be able to organize a second TEDxYouth event at our school 'Het Nieuwe Lyceum' in Bilthoven.
A TEDxevent is a locally organized event for which the TED organization has given a licence. It's all about 'IDEAS WORTH SPREADING'.
Our theme this year is NO LIMITS. We are proud to have found an amazing set of young and inspiring people willing to give a TEDxtalk! These speakers not only have 'ideas worth spreading' but they also seize opportunities, don't mind failing and starting again and see endless possibilities! An enthusiastic team of HNLpupils is involved in organizing this unique event.
For more information about the speakers please double-click their names.

Caspar Roth

NuonSolarTeammember
Why everyone should teke a gapyear. When I was at highschool I had it all figured out. I was gonna be a fighter pilot and nothing else, period. But then something that was completely out of my hands forced me to take a different path. A path that brought me in situations I never thought I would be in. Sit back and let me tell you why I think everyone should take a gapyear!

Merijn Tinga

biologist, plasticsoupsurfer
Merijn Tinga is a biologist. He turned his back on biology in 2000 when he decided to cycle to Marocco (and back) with a kitesurfboard behind his bicycle. Once on the Maroccan beaches he decided to ‘become’ a visual artist. In his studio he makes installations and sculptures for the public space and festivals. He gained regional fame with his art-collective (Kunst Uitschot Team) through the illegal placings of their sculptures – many of which can still be admired in the public parks of Leiden. In 2009 he sailed around Great Brittain for a photography project – a camera in the mast of their ship took interval photos during the whole circumnavigation. After having built the Plastic Soup Board he has become focussed on Marine Litter. In 2015 he sailed round Scandinavia – hunting for plastic. He is now preparing a North Sea crossing on a board the shape of a Soda Bottle.

Stephanie Akkaoui-Hughes

founder, lead architect of AKKA
As Stephanie Akkaoui Hughes, founder and lead architect of AKKA believes “It is at the intersection of different forms of interactions such creativity, collaboration & learning that added value and (open) innovation emerges. Every space needs to foster interactions, only to varying degrees”. This is why, we at AKKA are dedicated to creating spaces that foster interactions. Whatever your architectural needs are, we start by asking “how can we design your space to foster interactions?” To answer that question, we have developed our unique architectural process. The title of her TEDxtalk will be: ARCHITECTING INTERACTION: How to innovate through interactions.
