Forest through the trees

To effectively rethink education we first need to understand the bigger picture. This year, TEDxWestVancouverED will focus on what we want education to become without getting lost in the finer details of how we will get there.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. Learn more about TED at TED.com.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx - where x means an independently organized TED event. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, like ours, are self-organized.
