The first-ever virtual TEDxKanzlerPark Conference, a one-day gathering of 16 renowned thinkers, doers, and performers locally organized with the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and Alumniportal Deutschland, will bring a diverse line-up of topics. Registration for the free virtual event is currently open and available at the TEDxKanzlerPark page.
The conference is built on the model and under the license of the TED Conference. This local virtual edition brings together thinkers, doers, changemakers, and innovators to share ideas, insights, and discussion. The program features talks, guided meditation, musical performance, and conversation breaks where the online audience and speakers can exchange ideas. To build beyond the screen experience, the event will feature the moderators and special guests in a fantastic location — Theater im Delphi, a historical former silent film cinema of 1929 in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin.
The daylong program is divided into three sessions: «Climate Action,» «The Future,» and «Societal Changes.» Topics to be covered include cooperation in city-making, reimagining structures for civic learning, libraries’ role in making our world better, new ways of waste management, finding space for mobility innovation, decolonizing musical hierarchy, gender equality, «Willkommenskultur,» etc.
