School Events

Organize your own TEDx like School Event and inspire for change and innovation in your own school/ university!

We stronlgy believe that real change happens in the schools and universities themselves by sharing ideas and talking to each other. You (the teachers, students, principals etc.) are the ones educating on a daily basis. Therefore we created a new concept: we call it School Events! We aim to inspire 25 schools this year to host their own event. We invite you to have fun while talking education and organize your own education innovation event based on the world famous TEDx. You will organize it, we will guide you!

Your own event can be parallel to the central event in Amsterdam. However you can organise it at a moment that suits you better as well. Students and teachers can invite their own speakers. For example students, teachers and local heroes from outside education ignite a conversation about innovation in education. They give inspiring talks and at of the day there will be a conversation about how best to move forward together. Speakers can talk about anything relevant to your organization, for example:

  • New ways of learning

  • Things your school can learn from entrepreneurship/ entertainment/ technology/ science

  • The students perspective on how they like to learn things

  • Or just any hot topic in your school to increase having fun while learning and deliver quality education
