Overcoming Boundaries

The first TEDxHeidelberg took place on October 29th, 2016

Why

We believe ideas shape who we are and how we approach the world around us.

We believe it is our own responsibility to create the future we want to live in.

We believe it is our duty to help the change makers, innovators, entrepreneurs and young talents of our time to share their ideas and to connect with their community.

We invite you to take part in our journey towards our common future.

We invite you to dream together with dynamic speakers, performers and local thought leaders.

We invite you to question your habits, to leave your comfort zone and to overcome your boundaries.

Our theme for 2016

Overcoming Boundaries

 

All of us are surrounded by different kinds of boundaries as part of our daily life – habits, laws, physical and mental
limits, just to name a few. The way how we are affected by these boundaries is hugely diverse and mainly
determined by our individual character and the role we play within the society. Which rules do we decide to follow,
which personal limits do we question and which boundaries do we actually try to overcome?
