x = independently organized TED event

Theme: Borders

This event occurred on
April 16, 2024
Erlangen, Bayern

Our theme "Borders" revolves around showcasing the message that transcending boundaries instigates change. Our brilliant speakers will explore the prevalence of borders worldwide whether that be political, social or technological and share their range of ideas and experiences that highlight the impact of these borders on our lives.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
