Identity

Happiness by sharing

Whatever we achieve, we achieve it together. We share what we can and give what we have, so that everyone is better off. And that makes us all happy.

Start with inspiration

Without inspiration we can do little. Inspiration is the energy we need to get started and to keep going. We all want to touch and be touched.

Passionately realistic

We are dreamers, of course, but at the same time we are doers. Just dreaming won’t get us anywhere. More than from anything else, we get energy from making our dreams come true.

More with each other

We believe in dependence. Growing together makes us all better. The exchange of individual qualities makes us stronger as a group. This exchange is not a snapshot, but a continuous process.

Being an example

We are quite ambitious. Within our possibilities we only go for the very best. In this way we can be an example for others, and share our energy even faster.

What is TedX?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFryslân, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFryslân event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
