We are excited to announce that TEDx will be coming to Chamonix on Saturday 10th June 2017. TEDxChamonix will be a mix of speakers, live performance and video, exploring the theme of ‘Breakthrough’. We hope you’ll be able to join us – save the date!
Our theme reflects that the Chamonix valley is full of people who are pushing past boundaries, creating breakthroughs in many fields and endeavours. We’ll be showing how the valley is a world-class stage for the outdoors attracting athletes of that calibre. But, we also want to explore other parts of our culture, across science and arts – to find those breakthroughs that will influence our futures. Finally, breakthroughs aren’t just something that other people achieve – Chamonix is a place for personal exploration, and whatever our current limitations we’re all searching for those breakthrough moments.
If you haven’t been to a TEDx event before, expect an exhilarating mixture of global and local “ideas worth spreading” communicated through talks, performance and video. The Chamonix valley galvanises us in so many ways – whether in sports, the environment, arts or technology – all of which we want to encompass in one event.
Our speakers team is hard at work confirming speakers for the event. We’ll be revealing more as it’s finalised
