According to the most reliable predictions, the world population will grow to the magical nine billion people in the next 30 years. With this population growth on the one hand and increasing scarcity of food, energy and other sustances on the other the following question arises: how can we create a sustainable world for 9 billion people? An important and unifying theme, that is hot topic on the agenda of companies and multinationals both national and international. How can we, also as individuals, realize a sustainable society, with a sustainable production of necessary raw materials, sustainable healthcare, balanced nutrition, and above all a stable environment?

What is your position?

TEDx Maastricht also focuses on the responsibility of the individual. What can you do to contribute to a sustainable future? Everyone must submit, everyone must participate, only then we can create a sustainable society. 9 Billion and you, and in particular the “you” is so important in this case!
