German angst? Foreigners unwelcome?

It’s time to explore ideas that translate patterns of prejudice and inertia into real-world solutions. A team of 13 university students embraces the challenge of organizing Dresden's 1st TEDx conference, sending out a signal to the world.

How It Worked Out

Successfully carried out a conference with 12 partly international speakers, 135 guests and professional video production.

My strengths and responsibilities were implementing task management, a media strategy (press releases and contacts, social media via Hootsuite), logistics (with the help of the University Clinic), print, web design, ticket management and directing the video on stage.
