as we delve into the theme of "Re-Building"
with a marvelous selection of speakers sure to inspire.
The last few years presented us with a lot of challenges. As a global community we face many ethical, social, economic, political, and environmental dilemmas. How will we re-build peace in the world and, equally important, in our inner world? The time has come to dust ourselves off, look to the future and think about what to do next. Our “house” needs to be re-built. From scratch? A smooth change? A radical change?
As we set out to re-build better, we need to think about how to lay the grounds for a new sustainable, inclusive and resilient society. In what direction should we go? How can we re-build close relationships as well as global relations to leave a better world behind? The situation calls for all of us to become architects to co-create this future. We can all take our own tool of talent, a brick of hope, and contribute to re-building. Joining TEDxZurich 2023 might be an excellent foundation.

🧘🏽♀️TEDxZurich Dream Lab – Re-Building the life of your dreams
Conferences can be intense. We at TEDxZurich are working hard to bring a maximum of inspiration, innovation and connectedness to you. Sometimes this can be overwhelming for our minds and this is why we’ve created a space for relaxation. Lay down, take a seat on our comfy sofa, listen to natural sounds or a short meditation, experience the pleasure/pain of acupressure and cut your own tea before heading back to the show. This experience is brought to you in collaboration with Pranamat and Yasai.

TEDxZurich celebrates the value of innovation and inclusion. This is why we decided to open up our event to a diverse group of people. Our event is 100% barrier-free for people who use a wheelchair. Furthermore, we offer live closed-captions and sign-language interpretation for hearing impaired people. Additionally, some parts of the event will be complemented with audio description for people with reduced eyesight.
This year’s TEDxZurich main event will be offering all-vegetarian food. We have been re-thinking our whole food concept and are moving away from offering an excessive range of dishes. The food items are designed to cater for a large audience while also considering the before and after effects of production and consumption.
