In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, which is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at a local level.
In order to support the TED idea in the Eastern part of the Netherlands, we established a TEDx event on our own in 2012 at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, which became one of the biggest TEDx Events in the Netherlands. We are an iternational stage for people with inspiring ideas from and around Saxion University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, located in the cities Enschede, Deventer and Apeldoorn. TEDxSaxionUniversity is an independently
organized TEDx event under the guidelines from TED.
