We want to shine the spotlight on the innovative powers of the Netherlands. To celebrate innovation and ideas, inspire, and show the way forward to a better future. That is what TEDxBinnenhof is about – it’s the place for the passionately curious, can-do visionaries and fearless mavericks.
TEDxBinnenhof Catwalk for Innovation will feature ten inspiring talks on groundbreaking ideas from the Netherlands that can help tackle global challenges such as pollution, health care costs, loss of biodiversity, climate change and scarcity of natural resources, food and energy.
The talks on TEDxBinnenhof demonstrate innovative Dutch ideas that will inspire to solve some of society’s problems. TEDxBinnenhof will host simulcasts (livestream events) at various locations in the Netherlands and at Dutch embassies worldwide.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxBinnenhof, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxBinnenhof event on the 25th of June, 2012, TEDTalks and 10 live speakers will inspire to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
