Forget climate Apocalypse | Jelmer Mommers | TEDxMaastricht

In the media’s version of climate change, the end is always nigh. But equating global warming with the apocalypse is wrong. In his talk, journalist Jelmer Mommers brings you the real story. The truth is more human and hopeful than fiction, because millions of people are working to end the era of fossil fuels, along with the violence and inequality that have accompanied this era from the beginning.

Jelmer Mommers is an investigative journalist specialized in the field of climate change and energy for the Dutch journalism platform ‘The Correspondent’. He focuses on the intersection between sustainability, culture, politics and economics.

There is home for everyone | Samina Ansari | TEDxMaastricht

As a true citizen of the world, Samina Ansari is passionate about human rights. Her background in law helps her in her projects like gender awareness and refugees. Most recently, she worked on a project on legal education in Kabul, Afghanistan, her country of birth. Life taught her the importance of being flexible and considering different standpoints in order to solve problems. She is often asked whether she feels Afghan or where does she consider “home” to be. Her answer to that question is simple. “I am Samina, I don’t belong to any country, home is wherever I want it to be”.
