What happens in-between TEDxTUM events?

Our team puts a lot of love and energy into organizing our events, but we don’t stop there. Driven by our passion for spreading ideas and engaging people’s creativity, we put on smaller, invite-only events and activities as well as interactive, fun online and offline campaigns. We also highlight our past talks along with other ideas from the TEDx universe and beyond in themed editorials. This is our blog, where we collect and document all of this.

Do you have a fun, interactive idea for us to do, or an impactful project for our team to contribute to, or would you like to get involved yourself? Use the contact form to get in touch.

A cinematic journey (Editorial #21)

A cinematic journey (Editorial #21)

Lights, Camera, Action! It’s time to explore the art of movies and storytelling. Whether or not we can now go to cinemas, we all have spent a good portion of our time watching movies. Emotions run high, silence fills the room, tears slowly streaming down your face…

Movies are designed to explore ourselves, different narratives and perspectives across time and space. In a way it is a collective human experience and building and designing it is no small feat either… So grab a bag of popcorn and join us for this month’s edition of movies, we promise this won’t make you cry (that much). And if you want to go enjoy a movie after, we wouldn’t blame you.

Sports: Catalysts of Life (Editorial #20)

Sports: Catalysts of Life (Editorial #20)

We all grew up hearing the faint whispers about a sport your community loved and engaged in, or maybe it was your home team. Nevertheless sports is not just entertainment, it’s emotions, human experience, and sometimes it constitutes a big part of your identity. Join us this month as we explore how it’s not just a game but a way of life.

Sports: It is seldom just entertainment. It’s emotions, it’s math, it’s a mirror into yourself. It’s a journey of human experience but for all those who may not necessarily consider themselves athletes, don’t worry, you don’t need to jump into the ocean because sometimes it’s mind over body.

Happiness – a state of mind (Editorial #19)

Happiness – a state of mind (Editorial #19)

It’s spring in Munich. The sun should be starting to shine any day now, but before we bask in the sunlight let’s take a quick detour to explore something inside ourselves that should provide us warmth and comfort even on the coldest of days – happiness. If you are lost on where to begin, don’t worry, there is no right formula

Understanding how our emotional mechanisms work can be a very important catalyst to our happiness. It is our responsibility to make sure that we understand them thoroughly. From reintroducing stopping cues to utilizing opportunities – the choice is ours. So what are you waiting for?

FROM OUR EVENTS

Speakers at TEDxTUMSalon 2019

Speakers at TEDxTUMSalon 2019

This year, we shook things up. Our lineup of speakers was 100% female. Each speaker—intrepid and compelling in her own right—graced the stage of the TEDxTUMSalon 2019 event with an idea that changed the shape of the world around her.

Through these talks, we’ve watched the preposterous become possible: from walking trees on Earth to roving robots on asteroids, not to mention the ways that we can flip the script on travel for generations to come. As the concepts from our TEDxTUMSalon 2019 event come full circle, we invite you to ask yourself: what boundaries can we continue to break in the future? What is still within reach?
