Important Update regarding our event.

With respect to concerns over the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to postpone the TEDxTUBerlin 2020 conference in June. This has been a difficult and sad decision for all of us. However, we feel like taking this step is necessary to limit any risk which may further compromise our health safety.
The new date for the TEDxTUBerlin 2020 conference will depend on the development of the situation in the coming months. Please keep an eye on our social media pages for any new updates.
Additionally, we will not start our ticket sale as announced today. Your Early Bird tickets will remain valid, however we will offer a possibility to refund your ticket. We will therefore be reaching out to you in the upcoming days. We sincerely apologize and thank you for your understanding!

Stay safe and and take care,

Take part of a global conversation

TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that engage in conversations about ideas.
TED renewed a program, called TED Circles. Basically, watching and discussing TED or TEDx Talks in a small group to stay connected, especially now. That conversation needs everyone to consider each other’s perspectives, share takeaways and create a global conversation. In addition to monthly themes, there is a special program each month about what’s going on in the world so Circles’ discussions are as meaningful and relevant as possible.So, we are excited to announce that you can now sign up for a ticket to our third and fourth TED Circles on June 25th and July 7th.
The best thing about it: it is absolutely for free! As we only have a limited amount of tickets, we will be operating on a first come first serve basis. However, do not worry! There will be many more TED Circles to come. So sign up for free now!
