Help us unearth the next big idea
The TEDx community is filled with fascinatingly curious, open-minded and interesting people! Many not only seek out ‘ideas worth spreading’ but also harbour such ideas and cannot wait to share them with the whole world!
We at TEDxZurich love finding inspiring ideas but since we are a group of volunteers, we cannot hope to unearth all these hidden gems on our own. That’s where you come in, our valued community! Do you have an idea that has the potential to change the world? Or perhaps you know of someone whose idea should be shared with a global audience?
Then please get in touch with us by following the links to our application form below!
Our core vales
When planning our events, we abide by the official TEDx Organiser Guide and standards:
· How famous a person is, is irrelevant for our stage. For us, their idea is paramount and must stand in the foreground! Therefore, we look for ideas rather than speakers.
· Speaker credibility is essential. We deal with experts in their fields in order to fully rely on the accuracy of their talk content.
· Importantly, we do not support the spread of pseudoscience nor serve as a self-promotion/advertising platform.
Things to consider when nominating
You can nominate speakers or even apply to become a speaker yourself all year round. However, to increase your chances of seeing your favourite idea on stage or being selected to talk in the same year, we encourage you to apply in the first half of the ongoing year.
You can greatly help us out in our selection process by answering the following questions when nominating someone or applying to become a speaker yourself:
