This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Do I want to achieve a high position? What would make me happy? "School must adapt to you, not the other way around!" Says Lisanne. In class we learn to think in a certain way and we must adhere to those ideals. According to Lisanne, the world needs more people who are questioning the status quo, not adhering to the mainstream. We need people with new ideas and creative solutions. Education needs to create space to do so.
Lisanne from Bergen op Zoom in many ways has
everything that meets the ideal: she is in-telligent, goes to a good
school, is socially active and travels all around the world. Lisanne has
a unique perspective on education.
About TEDx, x =
independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading,
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people
together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video
and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a
small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x
= independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides
general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are
self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
