We’re taking the TED spirit to heart and venture into a new format: TEDxTUBerlin goes digital!
A hybrid event to inspire, learn and interact with one another on a whole new level while staying at home.
The TEDx box will make it possible. After signing up, we will deliver a box filled with exciting content to your home. You will find amazing material in it which comes directly from our speakers and will be used during the talk, turning you into an active participant. There might be some delicious snacks from our sponsors as well.
Unboxing day is the 28th of March. At that day, you enter our live stream where the event is hosted.
Get prepared for 3 fantastic, interactive talks and a live performance which will make you want to reset your mind.
We are highly looking forward to this new experience! You too? Great! Then sign up and we’ll see you on March 28th.
Let’s talk about sex – or rather, contraceptives. For women*, there are several ways to prevent pregnancy. But the most popular contraception methods are hormonal or copper-based which can have a negative impact on one’s mental or physical health. Men* however only have two options: the irreversible vasectomy or the condom. It’s time for a revolution! With their petition @betterbirthcontrol, Jana Pfenning and Rita Maglio demand free and better contraceptives for everybody. In their talk, the two university students will explain why we still use out-dated contraception and how to tackle the status quo.
*We see the term “woman” and “man” as a social construct of gender and are aware that there is more natural variety in human’s sex than cis-woman and cis-man for whom gender equals sex. The * shall represent this diversity which is why we write women* and men*.

Communication determines our lives, connecting people with themselves and with society. The Institute for Communication and Society combines research and funding: We offer active training, tailor-made seminars and individual coaching. In addition, the institute prepares studies on rhetoric, society and personality. This way, we combine research with mediation, so knowledge becomes impact and theory becomes practice: for individuals and the entire society alike.
