TEDActive 2014

TEDActive 2014 - Whistler Blackcomb

TEDActive is coming back to its snowy roots.

2014 marks TED’s 30th anniversary, and the theme for TEDActive 2014 is simply this: “The Next Chapter.” We’ll be seeking to understand the significant developments of the last 30 years ... and applying that knowledge to understand what’s ahead. All while celebrating the engaged and connected TEDActive community, with projects, skill-sharing and amazing conversations. Come to Whistler to be part of “The Next Chapter.” 

Whistler Blackcomb offers 8,100 acres of powder-filled bowls, ancient glades and mile-long cruisers all covered in an average nearly 40 feet of snowfall each season. In the valley you’ll find a vibe you can’t find anywhere else with a pedestrian friendly village featuring an array of lodging options to suit any taste or budget, over 200 retail shops, award winning restaurants, legendary nightlife, and an endless collection of activities. Plus this season, Whistler Blackcomb unveils two new chairlifts: the Crystal Ridge Express high-speed quad and the Harmony 6 Express high-speed six-pack.

Whatever you’ve been meaning to build, or learn to build, you can. Innovation happens when you tinker, explore and play. TEDActive is about finding opportunities to awaken latent creativity and let you rediscover the joy of making something with your own hands. Attendees can sign up for workshops to learn to use the tools in these spaces or dig in and share skills by leading their own workshops. Think bike repair, hacking, sculpting in cardboard, 3D printing, homebrewing beer and more.

Included in the TEDActive mix are TED leaders from around the world who are helping to foster TED's mission of spreading ideas: Volunteer translators, independent TEDx event organizers, TED Prize wish contributors and past TED Fellows. Special events create opportunities for these community members to meet face-to-face and exchange best practices.

A standard pass to TEDActive costs $3,750.
