Spreading ideas atop from world’s tallest mountain

Ideas can move mountains. Join us in the journey to spread ideas from the north face of Mount Everest on the 60th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s first ascent of the world’s tallest peak. TEDxEverest will bring the power of TEDx to Advanced Basecamp (at over 21,000 feet) to an audience of international climbers and local sherpas. For this we have invited renowned speakers from around the world to record 5 minute TEDx talks, and we have asked the global TEDx community to send in their favorite TEDx talks.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxEverest, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
