What does impossible mean? Is it a self-barrier, a limit imposed by society, stereotypes or even science? Or is the impossible rather an opportunity? How to tackle it? How to dare, question or embrace what appears impossible? #Bravingtheimpossible.

A group of students from the College of Europe, Natolin is organising a TEDx event entitled ‘Braving the Impossible!’ taking place on campus on 6 April. It will feature a diverse group of innovative thinkers who intend to share their answers, suggestions and theories as to how one ought to overcome what appears impossible. One of our very own Natolin students will be given the opportunity to become a speaker and challenge the impossible.
