TEDxESMTBerlin Organizing Team 2021

Just when the world was turning upside down, a motivated group of TEDxESMTBerlin volunteers gathered online for the very first time. If anything, the COVID19 crisis created urgency for the organization and its mission to help people access potentially thoughtprovoking ideas to create a greater impact on their lives.
While reflecting on the question, “What can TEDxESMTBerlin offer its community?” it was soon clear that the volunteers would have to be creative and think out of the box. The volunteers really wanted to offer something valuable that might help strengthen people to face the many more variabilities lying ahead. Over the past few months, the volunteersworked hard on building teams and developing innovative ideas to make this event reachable to maximum people in an influential manner.
All our team members are ESMT students who work voluntarily, driven by our passion for spreading ideas and bringing the community together. We see TEDxESMTBerlin as our playground for creativity, learning, and innovating.
