Five amazing young people were the speakers at TEDxYouth@Reghin, a TEDxYouthDay event themed “Make a Choice.” People probably wondered how these speakers, at such a young age, managed to provide the audience with real life lessons! As they shared some of their recipes for success, they brought energy, enthusiasm, and joy to the audience.
For three hours, the young spectators were silent, with their eyes focused on the stage. Over the course of the event, the guests were shown that their own ideas, spoken with passion, can be brought to life by vocation, enthusiasm, hard work and strong will.
The first part of the show was opened by a young band of artists called Sofar, who warmed the atmosphere while cold outdoors was unbearable. Then the speakers began. Here are some highlights:
Kristof Lajos: “Immorality and a lack of sensitivity destroy us, and then destroy the natural environment.” Lajos believes that a tragic event in history should forever live in human consciousness so that we can learn from it rather than ignore it, and create a positive world for our children.
Pera Novacovici: “It’s all about having an incentive, no matter what the weather is outside.” Novacovici, as a child, was one of the best piano players in his age group. He pursued this passion thanks to his grandfather’s encouragement.
Marcel Cremene says that we need a massive change in mentalities and ideals in our education system. He believes that creativity must stay alive in the instructive educational process.
Razvan Marc talked about his travels in an exciting speech that made the audience run off to imaginary places, where strange mountains, sun, and air have the power to heal. Marc believes that when we travel, we need to study the culture, customs, and people of a place.

We are very happy to announce that another TEDx event is taking place in Romania in the idyllic land of Reghin — TEDxReghin.
How did it all start?
You know that we (TEDxTimisoara) have a true passion for spreading ideas, for TED and for the TEDx community.
Our founder — Vlad Fiscutean — started to empower local leaders in different cities of our country to organize their own local TEDx events. The first breakthrough happened in April 2011 after more then one year of meetings and discussions with local leaders. A new TEDx event was born in the idylic land of Reghin — internationally known as “The City of Violins”.
Because it’s a city with a very active community of people. It’s known worldwide for it’s amazing hand-crafted violins. It’s the kind of place that many would love to see and would fall in love with. It’s the place where art meets modern science. One of the very last places on earth where you can still find luthiers even today that combine the old art of making string instruments with the advantages of modern science.
Reghin is a city and municipality in Mureş county in Romania, on the Mureş River in Transylvania. It is the place of origin of the Sasregen Hasidic Jewish dynasty. It has a population of approximately 35,700. Reghin was first mentioned in 1228 in a charter of Hungarian King Andrew II as Regun – however, evidence of its strategic location and defence system suggests that the town might have been considerably older.
Behind TEDxReghin is a local team of amazing people and local leaders including Organizer Sorin Suciu and Klaus Birthler.
TEDx Timişoara will remain involved in the event by supporting the community and sharing logistic resources, advice and know-how. This bridge between the Banat region and Transylvania is full of opportunities!
