One-day live webcast of the TEDGlobal 2012 Conference

We would like to invite you to a one-day live webcast of the TEDGlobal 2012 Conference. TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. The two annual TED conferences, in Long Beach/Palm Springs and Edinburgh, Scotland, bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).


TED includes the TEDx programs which give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently.

CERN is investigating the possibility of holding a TEDx event in the future. Follow @TEDxCERN on twitter or like our TEDxCERN Facebook page for more information as it becomes available.

Meanwhile, on 27 June, we will be showing 3 sessions of the TEDGlobal 2012 live in the Council Chamber from 9.45 to 11.15 a.m., from 12.00 to 13.45 p.m. and from 6.00 to 7.45 p.m..

To gain maximum benefit from the TED experience, leave your cell phone and laptop at the office, stay for a full session and let yourself be inspired by ideas worth spreading.
