'Catwalk for Innovation' is focus of TEDxBinnenhof event in the Hague
TEDx is coming to the Netherlands, and you can watch it live at the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C.
This international phenomenon provides a venue for thinkers and doers to share their innovative ideas in brief inspirational presentations. This 'Catwalk for Innovation' will be held on June 25 in the Ridderzaal in the Hague. In this beautiful historic building, built in the 13th century, 10 speakers selected from almost 300 submissions will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas on innovative solutions to the challenges of our times. They will give the talk of their lives on a ground-breaking idea that could help resolve global societal challenges such as environmental pollution, demographic changes due to ageing, and climate change.
Please see the TEDxBinnenhof website www.binnenhof.com/speaker for more information on the speakers.
You can also attend this event in Washington DC. The Royal Netherlands Embassy will organize a 'Catwalk for Innovation Breakfast’ at the Embassy. Please join us for this inspirational morning of innovation and discovery.
