This is what Opening Doors is all about:
Opening Doors reaches the fundamental conversations and the dialogue that is much needed across geographical, social and generational lines.
What can we learn from each other when we genuinely open the conversation across political lines and start speaking the same language? What can we look forward to experiencing in virtual reality or a great novel, in the near future? Opening doors is both an opportunity and a call to action, to come together and see what lies beyond.
Registration is closed. We will review all the applications and you will get an email from us.
We at TEDxZurich are excited about ‘Opening Doors’ and look forward to sharing our 12 speakers with you, bringing ideas on new economic approaches to leadership and business forms, showing hitech demos, sharing their personal stories and inviting you into a conversation with ancient Greek philosophers. Artists and partners on stage and at the venue will invite you to a journey through an individuals’ life defining moments – that opportunity, that role model, that phone-call, that teacher, the love of your life. A journey through that door that was opened to you, that challenged the course of your personal, profession, mental and emotional direction or even one that was closed in order to learn and grow. We encourage the audience to go away with the spark that leads to an individual’s inspiration, aspiration, challenge or a new path.
