Are you waiting for someone to make the move?

And what if it’s your turn now? Individual and collective power must join forces. It is the only way to create a sustainable future based on cooperation. Are you ready to take responsibility for the power that resides within you? Find out more about this year’s theme.

TEDxPragueCountdown 2024 has a weakness for the power within each of us.

Come and gain a new perspective on crucial questions about the power of individual human beings as well as the power of society. Get inspired to make a difference.

The conference program
is based on 3 main questions:



How are the power dynamics changing in today's rapidly transforming society?



What do we need to create a society consisting of truly strong people?



Where to look for a source of inner strength and how to take responsibility for changes into your own hands?

Topics of TEDxPragueCountdown 2024

Our society and its power dynamics are undergoing a fundamental transformation. Who really has the power today? Who is being dethroned? Are we helpless or are we just ignoring our potential? How is an individual supposed to find inner strength with such rapid changes?

Get inspired by powerful personal stories, academic insights, scientific and business perspectives on this year’s conference FUTURE OF POWER. Eight carefully selected speakers will share ideas worth spreading. The program will be divided into two blocks – one will guide you through the INNER power, the second one will address the OUTER power.

The ticket includes plant-based refreshment, coffee breaks, and a guided tour of the ČSOB ecological building for those interested.
The conference program will be bilingual – in Czech and English with an interpretation service available

Be a part of a groundbreaking event of 2024. See you on 8th June 2024 in a timeless ČSOB building.

About TED

TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) is a global foundation dedicated to “ideas worth spreading” operating since 1984. Currently, it includes the interdisciplinary conferences TED, TEDGlobal, TEDYouth, TEDWomen, the annual TEDPrize, live broadcasts, an extensive video archive of lectures subtitled by volunteers in dozens national languages, independent (licensed) TEDx conferences organized around the world and other communication channels.

What is TEDx?

TEDx is a local, independent, non-profit, volunteer-organized meeting based on the principle of the world-famous TED conference, based on a license that TED grants to the organizers free of charge. Its goal is to share ideas worth spreading, connect, inspire and inform within the local community. The letter “x” in the title of the conference stands for the independence of locally organized meetings that offer space for local speakers.

Did you know that ants form living “bridges” when they encounter an obstacle? They even build a “raft” out of their own bodies if water crosses their path. Through insightful cooperation, they overcome even situations that seem overwhelming at first.

That is the reason the ant oversees the conference this year. It became our muse.

It symbolizes the connection between the inner strength of the individual and the power at the level of society. Ant colonies are supported by actions of each member of the community. That shows us that even small actions of an individual can affect the functioning of the whole system.

Let the ant be our inspiration in the transition to decentralized structures based on co-creation.

Please accept our sincere invitation to this year’s conference. Come and broaden your horizons and get inspired by experts, pioneers and innovators from many industries. Other “ants” like yourself who will show you how strong you are and how your strength will multiply if you use it in cooperation with others towards a common goal – to elevate the society as a whole. Just like the ants do.

Why did TEDxNárodní change to TEDxPragueCountdown?

The power of collaboration caused this metamorphosis. Surprise, right? :) TEDxPrague team shares our values and tackles the same social issues as sustainability and climate protection. Naturally, we wanted to support each other.

“During the preparations for the TEDxNárodní project, we met with the Prague TEDx community. As TEDxPrague they have been organizing flawless events since the very beginning. Their experience and enthusiasm appealed to us so much that we decided to join forces,” describes Vladimír Dolejš, head of production of TEDxPragueCountdown.

Come and see what we have prepared for you together. See you on 8th June at the TEDxPrague Countdown 2024 – Future of Power conference.

Kampus ČSOB

The conference takes place in the timeless SHQ building of the ČSOB Campus in Výmolova Street. This building received the highest internationally recognized LEED Platinum certificate in the field of design and construction of environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings.

The heating and air conditioning solution is particularly unique. It has its own system of heat pumps – 177 underground wells with a depth of 150 meters and a total length of over 26 kilometers make up the largest system of geothermal pumps in the Czech Republic. It serves for heating and cooling as well as energy storage. The building therefore does not need a classic boiler room. It also has its own rainwater harvesting system and saves drinking water as much as possible.

Modern and gentle technologies can be found in the interior of the building and are also involved in its management. Thanks to Kampus, ČSOB became the first bank to become a member of the Czech Council for Sustainable Buildings.
