TEDxLeiden – Beyond the Status Quo info

Woe 29 Jan | Theaterzaal | 17:30 Scheltema Leiden Marktsteeg 1 2312 CS Leiden Netherlands

Hoe komen we tot een wereld waar 9 miljard mensen goed kunnen leven binnen de grenzen en mogelijkheden die de aarde biedt? Het lijkt erop dat onderwerpen als klimaatverandering, onderwijs, zorg, en armoede in een status quo zijn beland: de doelen zijn op hoofdlijnen wel duidelijk maar de realisatie gaat traag of komt niet op gang. Met TEDx Leiden gaan we op zoek naar nieuwe inzichten die kunnen helpen bij het doorbreken van de status quo.

Prijs € 15,-. Tickets te koop via https://www.ted.com/tedx/events/31545.

Lisette Rinke de Wit Education Innovation Program Manager
Lisette has a mission to help Dutch primary schools to adopt proven international education frameworks that inspire and connect children to the world we live in. Today this kind of education is only enjoyed by some happy few and at extreme school fees. Lisette presents the example in The Hague of two schools in vulnerable neighborhoods with considerable problems related to their immigrant populations: Transvaal and De Schilderswijk. A daring program was rolled-out over the past three years, with one of the primary schools now ready to reach an impressive milestone: authorization by the prestigious International Baccalaureate. The model offers a new, realistic and scalable opportunity for schools in The Netherlands and abroad to develop knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better, sustainable and more peaceful world.
