Theme: And the solution is.....

This event occurred on
April 13, 2018
Bonn, Nordrhein-Westfalen

Chosen by our TEDxYouth Club, the overarching idea that will drive our event this year is 'And the solution is.....'.

In a world of constantly sprouting and expanding problems, we will focus on the ways to finding achievable solutions. There are multiple lenses through which we can view this: music, art, science, ideologies, perspectives, creative solutions etc.

Please accept our invitation to join us in an event that celebrates problem-solving and encourages a pessimistic approach towards sustenance.
