Ideas worth spreading

Welcome

Ideas worth spreading at TEDxSaxionUniversity.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TEDxSaxionUniversity is an international stage for people with inspiring ideas from and around Saxion University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands. TEDxSaxionUniversity is an independently organized TEDx event.
