Adventures are designed to deepen connections in the local TEDx community and put ideas in action.
TEDxMileHigh Adventures offer the TEDx community unparalleled, behind-the-scenes access to the people and places that make the Greater Denver area so dynamic.
Adventures extend the TEDx phenomenon beyond the single day of the conference, enabling many more people to participate as we extend the possibilities for both speakers and audiences. By holding adventures throughout the year, many more people can become involved in presenting, learning, and advancing ideas into action. By offering an alternative format to the standard TED talk, concepts that are not easily communicated in a brief presentation can be explored and discussed. Adventures can include hands-on or on-site experiences, deepening understanding and accelerating the spread of ideas. Communities dedicated to the advancement of worthwhile ideas can support ideas in action.
Participants will meet the masterminds behind the future of technology, business, and entertainment, to name just a few. Many of our adventures are cross-generational by design. For youth safety and enjoyment whenever youth attend an adventure they must be accompanied and supervised by an adult parent/guardian, mentor, or chaperone (with signed parental consent).
Please join us on a TEDxMileHigh Adventure. A whole passionate TEDx community is just waiting for you to become involved!
