On the 18th September 2018 our team decided to take up the opportunity to try something new, in a space we’ve recently been welcomed to utilise.
What We Do: Take TEDx beyond the stage to new audiences, to expose, engage and inspire 'ideas worth spreading'
Every year, Greenpop - in partnership with the Platbos Forest Reserve - brings people together in the Platbos Forest to plant thousands of trees, dance to live local bands, learn from sustainability leaders, camp under the stars, and be inspired by collective action.
Meet Dane Rossenrode, TEDxCapeTown’s Web and IT Team Lead. Dane has been part of the family since 2015, after he came to hear about TEDx through Kirsten Eddy, a friend and past TEDxCapeTown team member. He recalls hearing about the Open Day via Facebook, decided to attend, and has been volunteering since.
Here follows a small introduction to the force of nature that is Wyomia Mouwers. Wyomia joined the TEDxCapeTown team in 2015 after attending a recruitment drive and she hasn’t looked back since.
As per usual, the first question on our lips is what exactly drew Wyomia to TEDx and what she loves about working with the TEDxCapeTown team. “I enjoy interacting with like-minded people who want to make a positive contribution in society”, she answered. Furthermore, she boasts about how TEDx enables her to explore and develop skills in a safe environment of encouraging individuals.
