It will never be the same again, that's for sure. So we held our horses for a while for the outside world.
But we didn't stand still. In fact we worked quite fiercely despite the uncertainties we have to deal with as TEDxAmsterdam and as the Award Team in particular.
So, please have patience, we are still here and thinking of you all!

In the meantime we are looking scouts and originators. Join us.

Why

Because there is no planet B, we believe we have to act now, to preserve what’s left and to let go what no longer serves us. TEDxAmsterdam knows that an inspirational story has the power to change the world. We do what we do best by reaching the crowd through our TEDx Events. Within TEDxAmsterdam we feel the urgency to do more, so we created the Awards as an accelerator for ideas worth doing.

How

The TEDxAmsterdam Award is a platform where ideas are transformed into action. We offer a program with a variety of workshops for excellent storytelling skills among others and use the TEDx movement and network to introduce people withan idea that impacts the word for the better to a broader audience to ‘crowd power’. By training, empowering and supporting these great minds we facilitate new connections, co-creations and help transform those brilliant ideas into concrete next steps together with our partners, members and future investors

What

Our aim is to be a platform for abroad diversity of ideas that contribute to Planet Act. To create a more inclusive, happier and healthier planet our challenge is to think beyond our own bubble. Every person looks at our planet’s challenges differently, faces other problems and will therefore think of other solutions. That’s why we need to scout diverse perspectives, representative for our society today. We believe that diversity is the key to innovation.

The Originators

are the people with those ideas that make an impact on a positive change.

We live in an era of transformation. Our challenge is not to optimize old systems but to create new ones that fit our planet’s future needs; socially, environmentally and economically. We need people that dare to think differently and are passionate to make a change with their entrepreneurial ideas on how to contribute to planet act. We are not talking about idealistic dreams and utopian fairy tales. We are looking for disruptive innovation and concrete ideas. We call these great minds “Originators”

The Scouts

are searching for people with “Ideas worth doing”.

The scouts are connected to different groups with different perspectives: from different disciplines to different cultures to different socioeconomic backgrounds.

DNA
As a Scout you are a natural networker who enjoys connecting people, businesses or ideas with each other. People like to talk to you. You love to listen to others, without realising you already think along while listening. You understand the hunger to be seen and heard and grant the other person that success.And you recognise a hidden gem!

The Partners

provide the acceleration of the idea & the originator

Why we need them.
We are a non-profit, volunteer-driven and unbiased organisation. We need partners who have the money and the diving board power; The ones who master a skill and are willing to teach an originator; The ones with the facilities that bring it all together; The ones who support the next steps.

DNA
You have an open mind, you firmly believe that everyone is capable of bringing ideas to the table that are worth doing.You have a kind heart and are willing to use the knowledge, time or other skills that you have to contribute. You also strongly believe that you need to create a place to give those ideas a chance to develop in all sorts so they can contribute tosave the world 

The Win-Win
At TEDxAmsterdam we love making things happen by creating a classical win-win situation through genuine connecting with each other. Hearing an idea and getting inspired is a totally different tune than actually building bridges. We specifically choose these words: ideas worth doing because we firmly believe that you have to create movement in order to act now instead of only listing or talking. We can learn how to speak so you can move people and we are good in events and even better in connecting people but from there we need to make sure that there is a springboard and that is where you come in.

And never forget the Power of the crowd

TEDxAmsterdam Award

[Description, why who wat how] In 2019, the Award Programme was developed as a part of TEDxAmsterdam. The goal of the Award Programme is to be a platform that serves as a springboard for ideas that can change  the world for the better. We want to move “ideas worth spreading” into “ideas worth doing”. This year, the first Award Programme will go live. 

 [does that mean the “idea” has already been ‘implemented’?  Or idea is just an idea and the price/award is to stimulate as a startcapital  to “DO” it ? ] Not really clear to me. Why-check,  what-check, how and who!?!?  vb https://www.red-dot.org/pd/participate   –  Lisa
