Last year, TEDxAmsterdamED introduced the concept of  Dutch DNA-based education . A concept with which we want to stimulate educational designs that match our Dutch core strengths. In the four upcoming years we continue the process by putting emphasis on four specific core strengths or our Dutch DNA that needs special attention in education.

These are:





While all four strengths will be addressed every year, one of the strengths will be in main focus. This year (2020), focus will be on entrepreneurship.

Our goal is twofold. We want the education system to empower students and motivate them in a way that is aligned with their needs, ambitions and prospects. At the same time, we want to equip them with tools that will enable them to make social impact and a positive change, both in their lives and in the world. Entrepreneurship in education is one of the keys to achieving these goals and is therefore the focus point of 2020.
By investing in entrepreneurship, we invest in a future and foundation that will allow young individuals to make social impact in form of significant and positive shifts in society.

Goals and vision 

Together with a variety of different organizations, TEDxAmsterdamED will work towards accelerating innovation in education. Not only by spreading inspirational ideas but maybe most importantly, by activation and practical implementation.

TEDxAmsterdamED was launched six years ago in 2012 with a single idea: what if we could create an event to open up education to the outside world and provide inspiration to the inside? TED just started branching further into their TED-Ed platform and were happy to give us a license. Since that first year we have brought more than sixty ideas worth sharing to our stage and to TEDx online and many more ideas were ignited within our audience each year.
