Upcoming TEDActive conferences
Requirements: All attendees must apply for membership. Due to limited seating and high demand, conferences sell out very quickly.
- Attending TEDActive in Whistler
- Online social networking: Create a profile page and join the year-round TED Conference private social network. Interact with other members and get matched with the 10 people you need to meet at TEDActive.
- TED Book Club: Enrollment in the TED Book Club, which sends an inspired selection of 2 or 3 books every few months, via Amazon Kindle software/hardware or physical books. After you register for a TED event, you'll receive the next shipment in preparation. (Unfortunately we cannot send retroactive shipments -- once our allocation of books is gone, they're gone.). The Kindle option includes bonus selections available only electronically. The Kindle Reader app is available for iOS, Mac and PC, Android, Blackberry and Windows smartphones in addition to Kindle itself.
- Conference video archive: A password-protected web video archive of the conference that lets you relive every moment -- made available soon after the conference
