The Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA) will host the first university TEDx to ever be held in Denmark.
KEA will host a student-run full-day TEDx event on December 11th, focusing on “emerging voices, technologies and ideas.”
 
Speakers for the event include serial entrepreneur and author Lars Tvede, Guinness World Record holder Hans Henrik Heming and Syrian refugee Noura Bitta Søborg. 
 
“TEDxKEA’s goal is to inspire young people to turn their dreams into commitments,” organisers said in a press release. 
 
The lead organiser of TEDx KEA, Doug Costello, said that Copenhagen is the perfect city for such an event. 
 
“This beautiful city, with its free access to high standards of education, the financial security blanket of SU [government-provided student stipends, ed.] and the unbelievable opportunities that it brings, make this the best place in the world to be a student,” Costello said in a statement. 
 
TEDx events are local and self-organized offshoots of the successful TED Conferences, which invite some of the biggest names in the world to speak on various topics for 18 minutes or less. 
 
TEDxKEA will take place at Empire Bio in Nørrebro and be simulcast to KEA’s Guldbergsgade campus. For more information, visit TedxKEA’s website
