Navigators (2018)

Navigators (2018)

Their ideas are taking us to new places.

Navigators are those special people who are pursuing the next wave of opportunity in technology, science, health, and energy among others. They are tackling big problems that need equally big thinking about solutions. And, they are helping us to explore ourselves and our time in history. Their perspectives guide us, inform us, and inspire us.

On November 3, 2018 our sixteen exceptional Navigators joined a sold-out group of more than 400 participants for a full day of deep insights and dazzling performances from the stage, matched with thought-provoking interactions in our participant engagement zone -- where our participants shared their own ideas with others who are equally curious about the world around them.

This event has concluded. Videos of the speaker talks are completed and available through the TEDxCalgary YouTube channel, or see an individual speaker's profile.

Signal vs Noise

Signal vs Noise

Our main event for 2017, "Signal vs Noise", featured speakers ranging from astronauts and astronomers to inventors and poets to soldiers and young robot designers. All had one thing in common: their messages were clear signal that needed to cut through the noise of our crowded, every-day lives.

Our main for 2014, "Truth(s)" explored the depths of what truths we hold to be important.

Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now

Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now

It's where we started in 2010, with "Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now" as our first event. We explored the linked themes of conflict, poverty, youth and elders at our very first TEDxCalgary event, and featured speakers like Naheed Nenshi, Nick Nissley, and many other courageous speakers who believed in what we were doing, and lent us their talents on stage.
