This is the TEDx Maastricht Conference Leader, proudly presented by the TEDx team. The concept is chosen in response to a contest. This best entry came from Jan-Joost van Stiphout, who is filmmaker in Maastricht. The conclusion of the jury was: "A perfect in concept and execution with the ambition of the conference". The voice text:
Seven Billion people on this planet,
and one of them is you.
And just like all the others,
you will have to make the best of it.
Not an easy mission in this complex world.
Mankind needs ingenious ideas and brilliant actions.
We have to preserve our world to sustain our environment.
And we have to rethink how to restore the smart balance,
between resources and all the wishes in our heads.
We have to react and rebuild local solutions,
and share the energy in worldwide dreams.
Soon there will be 9 billion people on this planet.
What is your idea and contribution?
What will you do?
