Nathalie Lecina from Studio Moio tells us that we need drop-outs to change the world! According to her, drop-outs are the best innovators ever, since they do not fit into any preconceived box. They don’t have to think out-of-the-box because they were never in it. For a number of years, Nathalie Lecina worked at the Institute of Societal Innovation (Instituut Maatschappelijke Innovatie) and while there became aware of the fact that the so-called innovators were all somehow ‘part of the system’. Especially after noticing that the education system is failing to motivate people to learn and demotivating them from developing themselves. Her idea could be a hack on the education system, and some other systems at the same time. ‘Drop-outs are the most valuable resource for innovation, especially for innovation in education.’ For more information go to: Nathalie Lecina is the winner of the TEDxAmsterdamED 2015 Award. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
