November 29th, 2018 With Science, not Fiction, this is a journey on how how science and technology can and do help to shape our world to a better one. Now, not later. We, not somebody. Science, not fiction.
May 31st, 2015 Passion is a word with a wonderful double-meaning: People are passionate about a mission that makes them happy, as well as about challenges that are not always convenient, but which have a meaningful goal.
June 19th, 2014 Waltzing, because our “playground” is the city of the Waltz. It symbolizes movement, action and teamwork. And we love to dance! Wild, because we seek unknown and exciting challenges. Waters, because of the Danube of course!
TEDxDonauinsel, founded in 2014, is a hub for outstanding ideas, extraordinary people and fun with a purpose. It gives impulses and encourages to realize own ideas, following the motto of TED: „ideas worth spreading“. Each event is hosted by a young and passionate team which works in a voluntary capacity with a focus on event experience design.
Mathias Haas is co-founder, licence holder and curator of TEDxDonausinsel: “The first TEDx event I joined inspired me so much, that ever since then, I do some things differently. TEDx ideas have the power to change behaviours and patterns, and this is what drives me.”
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDonauinsel, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDonauinsel event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
