About TEDx Erasmus University:


TEDxErasmusUniversity is a university-wide initiative that wants to incite and excite the open-minded community for a unique event. Basing its structure on the widely known TED conference, TEDxErasmusUniversity wants to bring a similar experience to the Erasmus University campus.

Thanks to social media, the hashtag (#), which is a form of metadata tag, is now used more than ever. Users of microblogging and social networking services such as Facebook, Instragram, and Twitter, employ hashtags to search for comments tweets with a common topic and to engage into a conversation about this topic. As such, hashtags allow for grouping messages and making it easier to look for specific pictures and messages across social media platforms. Under the general theme #Think, we envision to gather and spread the most inspiring ideas encompassed by Erasmus University’s four focus areas: health, wealth, culture, and governance. We want to engage people to participate into challenging and mind opening conversations and to #think out of the box.
