In a short moment, the program continues with Mick ter Reehorst: founder of Are We Europe (AWE), the organisation with which Red Pers is organising this live blog you are currently reading! He will speak about the importance of storytelling as a means of shaping the future of European community and its identity, during times the concept of ‘Europe’ is challenged in many ways. Ter Reehorst is this year’s winner of the jury’s vote at TEDxAUCollege’s 2018 Pitch Night. The winner of the audience’s vote that night was Ella MacLaughlin, who will speak later tonight about ‘Understanding Radicalism with the Power of Empathy’. Read Red Pers’ interview with them (in Dutch) below, written by our reporters Laurien Knorringa and Sarah Borgerdijn, who are currently also reporting at TEDxAUCollege 2018!
