The TEDxMünchen community has grown in the past few years and the last events were a great success. More and more young people (students and also pupils with their teachers) are guests at our events and would like to get involved. This is why in 2019 we will organize an additional conference:
For TEDxYouth@München we want to focus on a +/-20 years old target group which is curious, eager to learn, very open-minded and ready to take action.
On July 11th 2019 we will be guests at the legendary Muffathalle München. A beautiful concert location with a great surrounding and urban, egdy atmosphere. The motto of TEDxYouth@München 2019 is be “WHO, IF NOT US?” Whether it is regarding topics like climate protection, open borders or the chances of digitalization ”Generation Z” is taking more and more responsibility for the future of our planet and our society. Young adults and children all over the world unite with creativity and imagination to stand up for a peaceful and just future for the next generations.
Therefore with this year‘s TEDxYouth@München we will explore ideas and projects that will relate to a younger audience and inspire changemakers under 25 to step forward and shape our future in a positive way.
We will not only entertain you with the most inspiring talks by our young speakers but also set up a whole festival area with many workshops and side-events for you to join:
Registration for all workshops & sessions will be open within the next days. Stay tuned!
We would also like to extend an explicit invitation to all schools and teachers in Munich and the surrounding area to take part in this inspiring event with their students - as an incentive, as a further education opportunity, as a statement on how important it is to look and think outside the box and exchange ideas with others.
So if you are a principal, teacher or in any form involved at a school and want to take part at the TEDxYouth@München with a group of students - send us an email and let’s talk!
Luisa Neubauer is a 22-year-old climate activist. In December 2018, she called for the first climate strike in Berlin, after finding out that the German government did not plan to deal independently with the climate crisis. The Fridays For Future movement is now mobilizing climate protests in over 200 locations throughout Germany - while connecting and working with young people from over 50 countries. In her free time, the Hamburg-born young woman enjoys spending time with friends, watching program films and riding her racing bike.

Paul David Bühre
Paul really graduated from high school in 2017. How? He still doesn’t know! He started writing during his student internship at ZEIT-Magazin. His first book appeared a year later in March 2015: "TEENIE LEAKS - What we really think when we say nothing". After graduating from school, Paul travelled the world - and wrote a book about this adventurous, turbulent year. “DAS JAHR NACH DEM ABI” has been successfully published this year. Right now Paul is studying in Berlin and is looking forward to the long semester break in summer to hit the road again. Until then he draws and reads comics, watches tv shows, drinks coffee and likes to eat Chinese.
Maximilian is our youngest speaker. He is a fourteen-year-old pianist, composer and conductor – and a student at Wilhelmsgymnasium in Munich. The first prize winner at Bundeswettbewerb “Jugend musiziert” is no stranger to the stage, whether the Philharmonic Hall in Munich or Carnegie Hall in New York. In 2017 he performed with Lang Lang for the German President at Schloss Bellevue. Quite impressive, right? In 2018 he was a student-in-residence in piano at the Verbier Festival, and has been invited back this summer as a Junior Conducting Fellow. In collaboration with his sister Ayla Sophie, Maximilian is the founder of the non-profit project Young Musicians Live.
