Welcome @12min.ONLINE (hosted by Berlin), our evening of inspiration, exchange and networking across borders and industries.

"Beyond COVID19 - Making Choices About the New Normal"

Humanity is in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. While COVID-19 is the cause of deep struggle and suffering, the uniqueness of the situation also means this is an incredibly powerful chance for new things to emerge, and it will be up to us to leverage the potential for positive, long-term change.

crisis --> ancient greek "krisis" = decisive moment

We will have three speakers, each looking at a different topic in its relation to COVID19 and what we can create out of it:

DATA PRIVACY: Are democracies accepting deep cuts into personal privacy in the name of public health or the economy? If we do so, what are the consequences?

MINDFULNESS: Now that much of humanity is on something like a "forced retreat", will we deepen our sense of self and take that forward?

CLIMATE: Now that we realise how much change is actually possible in a short amount of time, what is needed for us to act decisively differently beyond COVID19 and in face of the climate crisis?

Everything runs at a 12min beat:

• 12minutes talk
• 12minutes Q&A
• 12minutes networking (yes, we'll make this work online ... stay tuned)

Their talks are designed to inspire, inform, motivate or make you reflect - always different, and always great fun. And what’s best: everything is for free.

Come along, get inspired, and enjoy the easiest networking in town!

More than 2000 speakers have rocked a 12min.me stage since the first event in 2014. 12min.me has become the fastest growing meetup outside the United States. By now, our events are hosted in 35 cities across 7 countries on a regular basis and on a broad variety of topics. Learn more at (http://12min.me)
We will gradually reveal the speakers for this special event in May :)
