The story of CITYx in your tweets


Seven speakers, 300 guests and one team pulled off an amazing event last Thursday, that set the spotlight on CITYx. We’ve learnt about its challenges, its faces, its restless character, its creators and disruptors, its hidden and its most open spaces. We learnt that CITYx is the individual people who shape their city, and it is the city that shapes its people.

CITYx is what we make it.

This is a mini story of what happened at the TEDxVienna CITYx salon as experienced by you, in your tweets. If you want to look for your pretty face among the photos we took at the event, visit us here or go here.

Stay tuned on our social media channels to be the first one to watch the talks once again as soon as they’re online and when you do, keep one thing in mind: sharing is caring!

Thank you for joining us and don’t forget to give us feedback on the event by following the link below. And since we know you’ll miss us too much if a long time will pass until we meet again, here’s where you can register for our annual conference TEDxVienna Brave New Space:

THANK YOU and looking forward to greeting you at TEDxVienna Brave New Space!
