TEDxBasel will take place on May 9, 2015 with the theme: PastPresentFuture

Our world can be viewed in so many different ways depending on which lens we look through. Whether we look primarily forwards or backwards; whether we're scientists, artists or economists; whether we've had our coffee this morning or seen the latest news. We are endlessly predicting and planning for the future, but how did we get where we are today and what can we learn about our past that will help us prepare for the future? Where do we have left to go and what is there still to discover? Come and explore your past, present and future at TEDxBasel.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBasel, where x = independently organized TED event.
