Curated talks from TEDWomen 2021
Wednesday, November 24, 2021 | 7 - 9 p.m.


Powerful Ideas. Great Conversations. Effective Actions.

Join the TEDxCalgary team and several community friends for an evening of thought-provoking talks fresh from the October 2021 TEDCountdown Summit stage in Edinburgh, Scotland. Watch with us as we hear the latest thinking on how to turn powerful ideas into effective actions and influence the course of climate change in the critical years until 2030.

We'll be following the talks with a fireside chat panel with local experts, who can help us set the context for how some of these ideas translate to our local environment. It's a great opportunity to hear from past TEDxCalgary speakers who have delivered their own amazing talks over the last decade, as well as others in the community who continue to work hard on making positive impacts for our collective environmental future.

Then, join other participants for your own discussion panels on themes of interest. Share your ideas and actions with others who are equally curious about the issues and passionate about positive change. We'll even have an opportunity for 1:1 conversations at the end of the event, allowing you to make new connections with others (optional).

TEDxCalgaryLive 2021

TEDxCalgaryLive 2021

As a TEDx organizing team, we're very pleased to be presenting a selection of curated content from 2021's flagship TEDMonterey event, "The Case for Optimism".

Join us on September 21, 2021 for an evening of amazing talks curated by our team, and engage with other participants in lively discussions about what you've watched. We are anticipating that there may be some options for in-person attendance on a limited basis, as well as streaming of the talks and online discussions via our virtual event platform if you're not comfortable to attend in person, or just prefer to join us from the comfort of your own place!




Evidence matters to us as TEDx organizers, and the overwhelming evidence is that vaccination for COVID directly impacts the spread of the virus and protects your health.

If you're wanting to attend in person, we require that you accept the condition of being fully vaccinated (meaning a minimum of two doses of a Health Canada-approved vaccine), and that you are able to demonstrate proof of this at the time of attending. You may use documentation provided by Alberta Health Services, including the online app, or through a recognized vaccine passport from another provincial jurisdiction (yes, we think that we should have that here, too!).

If you're not medically able to be vaccinated (which we accept is a factor), or choose not to be for whatever reason (which we can't fully understand, to be completely honest), you are very welcome to attend the event online.

Further, while we would love to be able to interact at an in-person event without any further barriers, we STONGLY recommend that all in-person participants stay masked wherever possible. This is another important part of fighting the spread of COVID variants, even if you're fully vaccinated.
