The Dutch Embassy in Dublin to showcase Irish and Dutch ingenious ideas

Update! Location change

Due to great interest in our TEDxBinnenhof viewing event, we have decided to change the location! The event will now take place at Dogpatch Labs, which is, as our viewing event, a place where innovative ideas and ingenious solutions come together. Dogpatch Labs is a coworking space for technology start-ups.

The programme of our event will stay the same, but now at a great and inspiring location! This 31 March, we will livestream the TEDxBinnenhof TED Talks from Nora Khaldi (Ireland) and Jos Joore (the Netherlands) and we will have presentations from Andrew Douglas(Urban Farm Dublin), Adriaan Waiboer (Curator of the National Gallery of Ireland), Tony Bates (CEO of Headstrong) and Jojanneke van den Bosch (founder of OnlineComm Academy), presenter of the event and writer of her new book ‘Live Your Talks, which she will present at this TEDxBinnenhof viewing event. The Q&A and discussion sessions will be moderated by Simon Cocking from the famous Irish Tech News.

Every TEDxBinnenhof Dutch embassies from around the world help us spread Ideas worth Spreading. With great enthusiasm they set up their own viewing event, where they watch 2 or 3 or sometimes all the TEDxBinnenhof Talks live with their audience. Usually they select a theme that is relevant to their trade relations with the country they’re based in. By inviting speakers of their own and hosting interactive discussions about innovation and trade they have time and again generated amazing responses globally. This year the Dutch embassies are joining us again including the Embassy in Dublin! Today they are sharing some of their plans with us.

The current world problems are only solvable with innovative, ingenious ideas. As Dutch embassy in Dublin we want to bring Dutch and Irish ideas together. Let’s listen to innovators, let’s discuss their projects and let’s brainstorm together about solutions for the current challenges we stand for. We aim to create a platform of inspiration for Dutch and Irish businesses, civil servants and (international) students.

Innovative ideas from Ireland and the Netherlands | Ingenious solutions to current challenges is the theme of our TEDxBinnenhof 2016 viewing event. It is great to see that both Ireland and the Netherlands are represented during the TEDxBinnenhof event in The Hague. We will livestream both talks and have a Q&A and discussion afterwards, moderated by a talented journalist of Irish Tech News. We are honoured to announce that keynote speaker Jojanneke van den Bosch will present our event. She will be the icing on the cake when finishing the event with background information about TEDtalks and some tips about public speaking.

Because of the broadness of challenges we stand for today, our speakers have totally different backgrounds. Andrew Douglas, who runs an urban farm on Dublin’s rooftops and grows oyster mushrooms out of coffee grid, gives his solutions to current challenges as food security and urbanisation. And totally different, but as interesting as our urban farmer, is the Dutch curator Adriaan Waiboer of the National Gallery of Ireland.

All in all a highly interesting event where our speakers are not just senders of information, where we create a platform of interaction and innovative thinking.
