Interactive Program

Education is more than sitting down and listening to new information.

That’s why this year we created the time and space to process the ‘ideas worth spreading’ in your own way. Whether you feel the need for networking, following workshops or some quiet time, everything is possible! During the interactive program our guests designed their perfect TEDxAmsterdamED day.
