As the list of TEDx events grows, TEDxYYC will be live streaming theirs this Friday, from the Karo Design building in Calgary.
The list of speakers include the 18-year-old Eden Full, a social entrepreneur and environmentalist; Ben Cameron, the program director of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for the Arts; Jennifer Martin, CEO of the Telus World of Science; Chris Turner, author of A Geography of Hope; and many more.
“We’re excited about bringing together such a diverse selection of speakers for the day.” says Alex Middlelton, event co-chair. “We believe it will be interesting to hear from industries that most attendees don’t typically interact with on a daily basis.”
Check out the live stream by going to the website on Friday. The speakers start at 1pm MST.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TEDlikeexperience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
*full disclosure: I’m helping organize this.
