Max Zero Impact

Dutch climate heroes unite!

A three-step inspiration program for anyone who wants to tackle the climate crisis faster and more effectively.



COP26 is behind us. The challenge is clear. We should not wait for governments to secure our future. But where governments are trailing behind, lots of us are already convinced: we can change climate change … if WE start NOW.

Because whatever our leaders did of did not agree one, let’s agree on this: if we as a young generation do not take action ourselves then nothing anyone else will matter. That’s why we created our special Youth Program MAX ZERO IMPACT with support of the MDT Utrecht.

What is Max Zero Impact?

First of all – Max Zero Impact is a strange combination of words, chosen to make you think. Zero impact – that’s not what we want to achieve? Max impact – maximal impact, we dig that! What do we want Zero of? Ah, a zero net future! Zero emissions that are not compensated for anywhere else. No use of resource without giving back.

Max. Zero. Impact. Exclamation mark.

So Max Zero Impact is a training program for young climate activists. Because if we want to realize a ‘net zero’ future, we have to make the most of our time and effort, just like the speakers we put on stage during TEDxUtrecht.

Join our Climate Strategy Bootcamp for sustainably active (or wanting to become) young people and students.


Stage 1 of the Max Zero Impact-program (April 15th) combines a Meet&Greet with TEDxUtrecht speakers who have made impact on and beyond the TEDxUtrecht stage AND a series of guided inspiration sessions from people who know how to impact your world
We’ll have coaches and experienced changemakers at hand who’ll help us to get the most out of our personal and collective energy, drive and passion to reach a net zero future. You also meet your peers and fellow participants of the program and see what students from the Universities of Applied Sciences from Amsterdam and Utrecht and other students from Utrecht are doing to battle climate change. And of course, we’ll exchange personal goals and discover your personal drive concerning.

Stage 2 and 3 and the last date of our program combines a active morning that focusses on you and the impact you’re making (or want to make) which we follow up with a free visit to TEDxUtrecht Countdown on june 15 in the Stadsschouwburg Utrecht.
During the day you’ll have another Meet&Greet with two of our other speakers in a College Tour-format in the Stadsschouwburg. You’ll get more good practices and have time to discuss how the work of our speakers and your fellow participants can influence your own climate actions. We’ll round of the program with a dinner and drinks – and if COVID allows it, a party to wrap things of.
