TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a 4-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. Inspite of TEDxKassel being a virtual event, this does not mean a simple livestream with all participants sitting at home and doing nothing! The TEDxKassel Talks will be complemented by diverse workshops, side-events for cognitive relief, an interview with John Strelecky (author of the book "Big Five for Life"), a panel discussion about the opportunities associated with social entrepreneurship, and our all-new pitching event for local startups and initiatives. In addition, there will be networking opportunities during all of the event. Date: 24th & 25th Oktober 2020. Ticket price: 27,50 – 35 EUR.
