In 2017 New Zealand will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Scott Base, one of the oldest research facilities located in the international territory of Antarctica.
To mark the occasion, Antarctica New Zealand will host a first-of-its-kind event on ice, broadcast around the world: TEDxScottBase.
It aims to bring the very best ‘ideas worth spreading’ not only to the Antarctic, but to the world.
From Scott Base, Antarctica to the World
With an ambitious line up of speakers heading to the most isolated place on earth, TEDxScottBase is like no other event.
Instead of bringing guests to Antarctica, TEDxScottBase will be relayed to the world in live viewing events being held worldwide. All of this will take place one week after the event itself, on Sunday 22nd January 2017
TEDxSunnyvale is proud to host the only TEDxScottBase viewing party in California.
Our local Viewing Party is at TechShop, 300 S Second St, San Jose, CA 95113.
We will open for checkin on Sunday at 9:30am, and plan to start the Viewing Party at 10am.
There will be three sessions with around four hours from Antarctica. We’ll have breaks in between, with time to discuss the talks, plus a lunch break together.
There is no charge to attend.
I look forward to watching this extraordinary TEDx event with you!
