FVCC to Host Free Live Stream of TEDx Whitefish

Flathead Valley Community College will host a live stream of TEDxWhitefish January 16.  Themed “Defining the Last Best Place,” the event will feature speakers from across Montana who will share their original insights to help point the Flathead Valley down a path toward responsible economic development, resource conservation and inclusive citizenship.

Free and open to the public, a live stream of the event will be displayed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the large community meeting room inside the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC campus.  The event also can be streamed online at http://tedxwhitefish.com/watch-live/.

TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design.  TED originally started as a four-day conference in California in 1984 and has grown to support world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.  At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less.  Talks are then made available to the public for free at TED.com.  Speakers have included great minds like Bill Gates, Jane Goodall and Sir Ken Robinson.

TEDx started as a new initiative four years ago to offer communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue at the local level.  These micro-events help world-changing innovators from around the globe become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of the innovators’ remarkable projects and activities.
