The Dutch, on average, don’t care much for hierarchy. We are entrepreneurial, headstrong, creative individuals and have a long history of bottom-up empowerment. At the same time we have learned how to cooperate efficiently. These typically Dutch characteristics, that we call Dutch DNA, are hindered by the by the way our educational system is organised.
Het eerste School Event van 2018 wordt georganiseerd door het Berlage Lyceum op vrijdag 12 januari!
De filosofie klas van 5 VWO geeft met hun boek 'Onderwijs van onderen' een reactie op het rapport ' Ons onderwijs 2032'. Naast TED-like talks van de auteurs zelf zal er een panel plaatsvinden met onder ander Paul Rosenmöller, Peter Kwint, Johannes Visser en Jente Koopmans.
Anthony Heidweiller, a baritone, opera maker, creator, inspirer and promoter of innovative opera concepts, is a man with a mission: he wants to improve the world through art. Like no one before him, he bridges the gap between generations, and makes opera relevant for all. Anthony explained on our stage this year why sharing your own personal story is so important to make a connection with your audience.
Watch Anthony's talk here.
Every day, all over the world,10 unique TED(x) events are being organized. So far over 100.000 TEDx talks have been published online. All of this has been made possible by volunteers who are passionate about sharing ideas worth spreading with the world.
It has been over 2 months since our last event and we're looking back with fond memories. As you know TEDxAmsterdamED 2017 was put together by a huge team, and we really want to thank all involved.
A warm, big, THANK YOU
So here we go. This is not a short message, however it is very important as all was made possible by volunteers and generous partners.
I only decided to join the TEDxAmsterdamED team as a blogging partner on the evening before the event on the 31st of May, a spontaneous choice that my friend Jessika Lynch made possible. This was certainly the first event for Quirk Heaven and looking at the program I immediately saw a connection - the state of the education nowadays seen from the different perspectives of the speakers. The location was also a first for me, I was curious about Theater Amsterdam ever since I was working in the Houthaven area and I saw it raising up from it’s first brick. But seeing it from the outside is nothing compared to what it looks like from within.
