The Oxford dictionary defines surface as “the outside or top layer of something”, the term can also describe the outer appearance of a person, thing or situation. In the same dictionary, the verb “to break” is damaging something or separating something into multiple parts.
Taken together, these words convey the notion of breaking the surface of something, diving through or into it and uncovering what is behind or inside it.
The TEDxHHL 2023 event aims at exploring different facets of the term “Breaking Surfaces” and diving into stories of breaking through the surface of the unknown, leaving the comfort zone and making new experiences.
Get ready for enlightening, interesting and captivating TED Talks from this year’s speakers. Among others, we are looking forward to:
The talks will be held until 8 pm, afterwards we conclude with an open-end networking session.
Online participants will receive an email shortly before the event day with the dial-in details to the streaming platform.
