All around us we see the negative aspects of the future. The coronavirus, large forest fires, impending world wars, melting ice sheets and much more. But the political decisions are made by great world leaders who are going to suffer little from the consequences. TEDxYouth@Haarlem is a conference that revolves around youth. After all, we are still years on this planet and we have to live with the consequences caused by years of CO₂ emissions, for example. By "take your future", we mean that young people have to take matters into their own hands. Not thinking in trouble, but thinking in solutions. With talks on technology, entertainment and design, we want young people to think about how we can create a better future together.
