For several years we co-operated with Dutch TV to provide support and a program segment. Initially we had a series about Dutch Design. Thereafter we showed selections of the 2014 TEDxBinnenhof (Global Challenges | Dutch Solutions), the 2015 TEDxAmsterdam and the 2016 TEDxBinnenhof (Ideas from Europe). Programs used to be broadcasted weekly on Sundays on free -to-air channel C31 (Ch 44).
As an example, the TEDxAmsterdam 2015 selections included the following segments (in alphabetical order, source: TEDxAmsterdam):
