About

A special social event around the viewing of unseen TEDTalks from TED2015, just hours after they have been delivered in Vancouver, Canada.

A provocative, invigorating, mind-shifting experience!

We dare to think this will be the most provocative, invigorating, mind-shifting TED yet.

In our fast-changing world, a reliable grasp on the truth is hard to come by. In 2015 we are in search of deeper truth, richer understanding, better questions.

We will see the minds best capable of reframing our most familiar beliefs and concerns... and leave time in the program to challenge them in turn, to test their logic, to dig deeper.



Truth&Dare

In our fast-changing world, a reliable grasp on the truth is hard to come by. Take the following widely held beliefs. True or false?

Questioning truths

— The news is bad.
— Nature is good.
— Technology is no fun any more.
— Growing inequality is inevitable.
— Privacy matters more than transparency.
— Our kids will be worse off than we are.
— We've lost the battle against Big Brother.
— Physics is becoming incomprehensible.
— We've left it too late to prevent a climate crisis.
— The political right has run out of decent ideas.
— Robots will destroy more jobs than they create.
— The genomics revolution arrived too late to help me.

In 2015, we'll be questioning every one of these statements -- and many more -- in search of deeper truth, richer understanding, better questions. We will show you the minds best capable of reframing your most familiar beliefs and concerns.

Dare!

The unseen TEDTalks feature some of the most exciting creators of the future. Inventors, Designers, Explorers, and Change Makers of all stripes (provided only that those stripes are colored bold). We're at a time of significant global challenge. Yet our political and economic systems seem barely capable of responding appropriately. And meanwhile, astounding new technologies may be creating alarming unintended consequences and complexities. Who has the ideas that will create a future we actually want? They're out there. And we need to hear from them like never before.
