November 2nd 2023
Hans Otto Theater Potsdam

What actually is the present? It is the moment in which we act, make decisions, have experiences and enter into an exchange with our environment. This is where the fascinating zeitgeist lies hidden - that phenomenon that shapes the mood climate, the prevailing values and beliefs of our society. The present is the only time in which we can really live.

Together we travel into the here and now! We search for the underlying essence of our zeitgeist to uncover the mood climate, the prevailing values and beliefs of our society. How is our collective consciousness shaped, and why? Because only by understanding the reality of the present can we shape the future.

Let's be inspired by the spirit of our times! Together we will explore the possibilities that the present offers us and use them wisely to shape a better world.

During the evening you can expect seven exciting lectures on the turn of the times in German and in English.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has developed a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to have a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPotsdam, where x = independently organized TED event. Our TEDxPotsdam event combines TED Talks video and live speakers to create deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


Every TEDxPotsdam event is realized by a wonderful team of volunteers.
