TEDxCalgaryLive 2022

TEDxCalgaryLive 2022

Join TEDxCalgary and community partners for a lively session of specially-curated talks fresh from TED2022, "A New Era"

Unless you attended it live in Vancouver this year, this will be a unique opportunity to watch some of the latest talks from the event and engage in live, in-person discussions with other equally curious Calgarians!

We'll be hosting two sessions via our online events platform, Run The World::

  • Lunchtime "brown bag" - 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. (bring your own lunch to enjoy while watching)
  • Evening "ideas mixer" - 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (with additional options for discussions with other participants)


Registration is free via our Showpass ticketing site, and please select the applicable session option under ticket types (or register for both).



Special Note:

Due to recent COVID exposures among members of our event team and/or their family members, we have had to convert this event to an online format. As an evidence-based organization, we take our public health responsibilities seriously, and do not wish to contribute to onward transmission of the virus while team members may be able to pass it along.

We very much look forward to a future opportunity to connect with participants within the new Platform Innovation Centre, where we are a programming partner, in the coming months.

Calgary Unplugged | An Earth Hour Collaborative Event

Calgary Unplugged | An Earth Hour Collaborative Event

TEDxCalgary is joining a number of community partners to celebrate Earth Hour 2022 through "Calgary Unplugged", an awesome set of talks, interactions, and a pedal-powered dance party when we (and several other municipal locations around the city) disconnect from the grid!

You're encouraged to attend the event in person at Calgary's Central Library (note: capacity restrictions are in effect), or hop onto our TEDxCalgary web stream between 7:00 p.m. and lights out at 8:30 p.m., when we'll also close off the web stream. In between, our Facebook page will feature both the main web stream and a number of live, on-site video vignettes from the interactions zone.

Join us on our Facebook page here for the live stream:
