Theme 2020: Next chapter

Every chapter is the beginning of something new.

Something old stops to exist while something new starts to evolve – for the better? You don’t know. 

The change coming with a new chapter can have a tremendous impact on you, organizations, or even entire nations. And if the change is affecting you, you will have to face it, you can’t run from it. This is especially true when looking around and realizing what’s happening right now. 

The year 2020 is not only the beginning of a new decade but a starting point for big changes to come. We now stand still and have the time to contemplate – what will there be? With our upcoming TEDxEhrenfeld, we want to dig deeper and explore this question: What will the new age bring for you, me, and us?
