Try or It Will Never Happen: Sven Clement

A self-proclaimed entrepreneur since the age of 10, 24-year-old Sven Clement is currently formalizing his education with a Masters degree in Information Systems at Saarland University. His interest for innovation and change lead him to co-found the Pirate Party of Luxembourg in 2009 which he presides until this day. Sven does also currently hold the position of chairman at the student representative body (AStA) at his alma mater. Whenever he finds the time, Sven likes to play volleyball and think about start-up opportunities. Is it possible to really influence politics as a pirate? Can you change how people think about a term that is hundreds of years old? This talk is a tale of how 14 young people tried the incredulous and (somehow) succeeded. You will be taken on a journey of how the courage to simply try something new can instill change. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
