TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.
For their fifth anniversary, TEDxAmsterdam focused on the past, the present and the future for their city. Twenty-six speakers and performers gathered at the city's Stadsschouwburg Theater for a full day of talks and conversation, which was broadcasted to viewing parties all over the city, including a virtual reality livestream to passersby.
What is TEDx?
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED. Learn about the TEDx event types
