«when you knock on a door, somebody will open»
Every year the non-profit and volunteer based organization TEDxZurich offers a major platform in Zurich to bring people together and share ideas worth spreading. As part of the TEDxZurich core team I hosted the event for the third time now. A premiere was that I had a co-host this year: Sandro Meyer. We can't keep things the same every year and this was definitely a nice change. But most important were the speakers, who shared their stories and inspired the audience with their ideas. The first speaker was Rima Alaifari. At the age of just 30, she is the youngest math professor at ETH:
Christian Hirsig was up next and shared his project Powercoders: A coding academy for refugees.
The audience at TEDxZurich is open-minded, critical and fun (as you can see from the pictures... okay, they were just getting entertained by Swiss comedian Fabian Unteregger and by our last speaker Diccon Bewes).
I can't mention all the speakers, but soon all the talks will be available online for free.
