You are invited to experience TED2019: Bigger Than Us

The renowned flagship TED Conference is held annually in Vancouver and more than a thousand people attend the 5 day conference. 

At TEDxBaselLive, you will have the opportunity to view an exclusive streamed session of the sold-out TED2019 Conference, in addition to watching and voting for the TEDxBasel Pop up Talks live on Saturday 27th April, 15:00-19:00 at UBS Aeschenvorstadt, Basel

“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

The political and technological turmoil of the past few years has had unexpected consequences: it’s causing us to ask bigger, deeper, more challenging questions. Like … where is this heading? what really matters? is there more I should be doing?

TED 2019 is joining the same search for deeper meaning. They’ll be exploring technologies that evoke wonder and tantalise with superhuman powers, mind-bending science that will drive the future as significantly as any politician, the design of cities and other powerful human systems that shape our lives, awe-inspiring, mind-expanding creativity and most of all, the inspiring possibilities that happen when we ask what ideas are truly worth fighting for, worth living for.

TEDxBasel Pop up Talks

This year at TEDxBasel Live, in addition to having exclusive access to watch a streamed session from TED 2019, attendees will have the unique opportunity to see their fellow TEDxBaslers share their ideas in the form of ‘pop up talks’, and vote for the best three talks to qualify for the second round. The winning talk will then be presented on stage alongside the official roster of TEDxBasel speakers on 11th May.

Do you fancy yourself as a TEDxBasel speaker? These spots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To find out more about the Pop-up Talks, click here.
