This year’s TEDxAmsterdam aims to bring you some of the most valuable insights on ourselves: the human being. “What is it like to be human?”, we ask. When we choose, the impact of our choices is unknown. We’re focusing on human accomplishments, people’s unbreakable spirits and practical wisdom able to change the natural environment we’re living in. Next to that we will take you a step further and invite speakers that highlight irrationality, human error and unexpected connections: exploring the darker sides of our mind is intriguing.
