Thank you to everyone who participated in TEDxBasel 2015.
This event would not have been possible without the huge contributions made by our speakers, the volunteers and of course OUR PARTNERS, in particular our producing partners i-net and Audiorent Clair AG.
A hugely informative and entertaining afternoon was had by 220 guests, who saw seven fascinating live talks, three TED videos, one wonderful fusion of dance and talk, and one musical performance. The event was moderated by Master of Ceremonies Gabriel Gee-Jay Jenny.
Our 9 speakers and performers, led the narrative of our theme Past, Present, Future in examining history, current developments and the future in a variety of topics: technology, urban planning, social interaction and personal and local stories. Our speakers and performers were a wonderful representation of the inspiring people, unique ideas and cutting edge developments that can be found in our city. Find out more about our speakers HERE
