Stay tuned for TEDxLU 2020!

The theme of TEDxLeidenUniversity was Through a New Lens


In our modern world we can be so busy and caught up in ourselves that we sometimes leave prejudices and stale ideas unchallenged in our minds. We took a day to leave our preconceptions at the door and enjoy intellectual challenges with old friends and new. TEDxLU aims for the people of Leiden and The Hague to gain a new perspective on diverse topics and illuminate fresh possibilities about the world around us.


When we look ‘Through a New Lens’ we can discover beauty where we previously saw only function, purpose where we used to see nothing.
