Crosstalks goes local... and global

Politicians and economists have long had the tendency to only see the positive effects of globalization. For the first time in recent decades, the idea of an ever-increasing global trade is questioned. To secure a sustainable future, focusing on locally rooted economic structures and on local manufacturing is crucial. Campustalks #18 gives the floor to successful examples of local initiatives that are economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible.

TEDxBrussels brings world class speakers to the heart of Europe, and over 2000 influential audience members to push the frontiers of our knowledge. The theme this year: EX NIHILO â where paradigm shifts happen, disruptive inventions and brand new discoveries take place.
