About this event

At TEDxEverest we want to highlight TEDx talks on global issues like sustainability, people who have shown exceptional persistence, and we will highlight some of the issues that are important to those living in mountain regions in the world. We will be showing pre-recorded TEDxEverest talks in addition to live speakers. Additionally, several TEDx organizers have sent in the best TEDx talks from their events for viewing on the mountain.

TEDxEverest will be exceptional not only due to its extreme location at over 6400 meters (21,000 feet) elevation but also for the people that will attend: expedition leaders, sherpas and climbers, all of whom have a special reason why they are atop the highest mountain in the world. During TEDxEverest we will interview some of these individuals and share the videos on this page.
