TEDxMileHigh: ASCEND is an immersive experience that extends inspiration beyond the stage. You may check out emerging technology at our exhibits lounge, dive deeper into a big idea at one of our conference Adventures, or flex your mindfulness muscles at a community yoga class.
Throughout human history, we have faced tremendous challenges. Today is no different. We can continue to move new ideas forward that will spark greater equity, drive technological innovation, and inspire new paradigms.
New ideas united with a courageous community can elevate curiosity, connection, justice, and a new world.
Join a community of dreamers + doers as we connect to explore new ideas ascending in community, science, activism, the arts, and beyond.
We passionately believe in the power of big ideas – to help us explore what’s possible, challenge the boundaries we’ve set for ourselves, and imagine a brighter future. The speakers and performers who take the stage at ASCEND will share their big idea of how we reimagine the future of tech, activism, climate, community, and beyond.
TEDxMileHigh events extend beyond the stage. Our experiential exhibits lounge and conference events are an invitation to take action, connect with speakers, and dive into experiences that transform our ways of thinking and being in the world.
