About the theme: Pulse

All around us, life corresponds to a beat. Footsteps fall along sidewalks and basketballs bounce on public courts—modern-day metronomes of a city’s rhythm. Grocery checkouts beep and postal workers buzz doors, keeping time across society’s most vital functions. 

The Pulse of a place in the world is created by its people: citizens, newcomers, children, and those who shape history. Inevitably, times change. New ideas rock the foundations of stale circumstances and modern concepts permeate tired views. A pulse isn’t limited to waves on a chart—it’s a glimpse at the epicenter of who we are. 

TEDxTUM 2021 encourages you to think in a new way about the tempo of our time: what pieces of our history will we revitalize in a new era? In what ways will we shift and flicker into something different? As history writes itself with us, TEDxTUM invites you to examine the flutters of our way of life.
