TEDxWhistler is organized by a group of volunteers who are passionate about creativity, diversity, and making the world a little bit better — one idea at a time. Our first TEDxWhistler event took place in 2021, but our organizing team has supported TEDxVancouver since 2009.
The TEDxWhistler team is dedicated to providing a platform with strong ties to the Whistler community, where influential speakers can tell engaging stories and share ideas worth spreading.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWhistler, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWhistler event, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
