muffatwerk München

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:

At ReDI School the mission is to educate newcomers to the tech industry and make technology accessible for everybody. We are excited to co-create with you your first steps into coding and the digital world!

Situated in Wexford, 22 year old twins Brandon and Ashley combine to create The Ocelots. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk.

SLATEC is the new project of Roman Sladek, the bandleader of the Jazzrausch Bigband. He brought together seven soloists from his unique techno big band. Within SLATEC those seven musicians merge into a kind of super organism that designs creative trap and techno music in real time. This opens up a new musical world that is as close to the origin of jazz as it is to the future of electronic dance music. Pushed by two drums, percussion, bass, trombone, and voice, the swarm of musical intelligence drives everyone into a collective techno ecstasy.
