For 2300 students in Belgium, France and the Netherlands, Monday the 12th of November will not be an ordinary day at School. They will not just wake up to a regular class or lecture, but to a whole new world of discovery: neurons, bits and atoms that give meaning to what is around them. For the first time, TEDxBrussels reaches out to students at such a large scale: 17 Universities and Business Schools in Belgium and from abroad will be live streaming the event next Monday. The local live events will be organized inside the campus giving room to students and professors to get inspired, share ideas and debate on the topics as well as join the conversation online.

Wondering if your School is on the list already? Here are all the universities tuning in online: Vrije Universiteit Brussel - Université Libre de Bruxelles - Institut Catholique des Hautes Etudes Commerciales - Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussel - University of Antwerp - University of Ghent – KU Leuven – Louvain la Neuve Université - FUCAM – Université de Mons - ICHEC Brussels Management School- Vlerick Gent Leuven Management School- HEC Liège – International Space University- University of Kent in Brussels- Fontys Academy For Creative Industries.

In addition to these, the famous CERN Switzerland , (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), which is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research studying the BIG BANG through the gigantic particle accelerator, is joining the movement and will be web streaming the sessions of TEDxBrussels2012 too.

We could not be happier to support this initiative. Our network grew this year with and we are now excited to bring this great opportunity to our audiences: besides the 17 universities that organize local events, there are also business schools joining us on site at Bozar- Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management as well as Vlerick Business School will be present there.

Nevertheless, this initiative would not have been possible without the help of student organizations such as AIESEC and AFC, who stand for true TEDx ambassadors on site, during the local live stream events. Many contests put together by students themselves have already taken over Facebook during the past week J . Moreover we welcomed our corporate partners, such as Accenture, to engage directly with students and their associations to create an amazing experience for those watching TEDxBrussels from their campus.

We hope this experience will enrich students from Belgium, France and the Netherlands, and together with our partners we will work to extend our reach to even more schools in Europe next year.

Get ready for what is set to be a truly inspirational day! Tune in online on the 12th of November!
