More and more people are starting to realize that we have to change to way we look at things and change our behaviour for this planet to sustain. That we have to focus on other values than growth and maximum profits. TED & TEDx contribute to this paradigm shift by enabling ideas to be shared with a large crowd.As Matchmaker at Nudge I come in contact with the most inspiring people and the most inspiring ideas and projects. The same goes for my role in in the TEDxLeiden team. Everyday I witness the growing can do mentality. And it energizes. I believe you can make this world a little better, by starting with the (wo)man in the mirror. And then make sure good ideas are spread. Wide. That's why I joined the TEDxLeiden team. TED is an amazing phenomenon. The TEDxLeiden team is an amazing team. So one can imagine I'm proud to be a part of it.
