TEDxLuxembourgCity and the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth are organising an event dedicated to education at 5 p.m. on 12 May, available to watch live throughout the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and beyond.
True to the formula that has made TED-Events successful around the world, nine speakers will pitch short, punchy presentations (in English), lasting no more than 18 minutes each, based on ideas and real-life experience in the field of education.
The conference, organised at the Forum Geesseknäppchen in strict compliance with the health measures currently in force, will be streamed live for the general public to watch on the Ministry's YouTube channel. Registration is compulsory and free of charge, on the website at www.TEDxLuxembourgCity.ORG.
Speakers at the TEDxLuxembourgCityEducation will include:
- Minister Claude Meisch;
- the two winners of the ideas competition launched in March: Emma Lasar (16 years old) will present her ideas on mental health in schools, and Giacomo Gambino (14 years old) will talk about the advantages of 'gamification' in education. Another teenager, Emma Schütz (17 years old), will present a performance of magic;
- Jos Bertemes, director of the Grand Duchy's national school for adults (École nationale pour adultes – ENAD);
- Liz Kremer-Rauchs, director of UP Foundation;
- Tania Brugnoni, director of 1535° Creative Hub;
- Léa Sitbon, founder of Lea Jewelry.
