Changing riverscapes - bringing nature back to our local river | Nadine Gerner | TEDx Ruhr University Bochum

#tedxrub2019 #embracetheunexpected #restoringrivers

In her optimistic talk, Nadine Gerner talks about the benefits of restoring rivers, after they have been misused as a network of open waste waterways as it was done in the Ruhr area during coal mining. Yet, she also talks about new uncertainties and challenges like climate change. She argues that we need to adapt to new requirements, as we did in the past. This time, however, we need to do it with nature, not against it. Nadine Gerner holds a diploma in biology from the University of Frankfurt and is specialized in freshwater biology and ecotoxicology and received her PhD from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig.

TEDx RuhrUniversityBochum was started in 2016 by a group of students enthusiastic about bringing the TEDx format to the Ruhr Area. In May 2019, we turned our TEDx conference into one of the largest TEDx events in Europe organized by students. We connected over 1,000 people at our TEDx event and brought 13 speakers to Bochum who presented their ideas and visions regarding the motto "Embrace the Unexpected".

„Embrace the unexpected“ is not just a theme, it is an attitude.
It is to look courageously and curiously towards the future and confidently embrace the manifold challenges of our time. To understand the new and unexpected as a learning opportunity for progress and not as a source of uncertainty. Such an attitude is needed in a rapidly changing world, now more than ever.
