We are hosting the next Live feed of the main TED event and will be tying in other talks that incorporate an interdisciplinary understanding of the world and how we must unite our skills together if we want to effectively tackle the complicated tasks of the emerging 21st century. Together with the new ideas at TED2011, we challenge all attendees to incorporate their own work and passions into what they learn at this 'big-thinking' TEDxLive event! (See schedule Below)

TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around the live webcast of TED Conferences. TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience live sessions of the TED Conference; events can be simple viewing events, and may also host live speakers.
