What a time it is. People everywhere are angry, suspicious, distrustful ... often with good reason. And yet, might it be possible to emerge from the current fiery moment stronger than before? Wiser? Happier?
With the careful combination of visionary ideas, strategic planning, hard work and lucky timing, we think so. At this very special TED event, we'll celebrate the clear-eyed and the bold of heart, those who don't shy away from the most intractable-seeming problems but rather step toward them to make the case that, even now, hope is possible.
We’re heading to the heart of everything -- and back to our roots. At this uniquely intimate event, we’ll host the conversations that matter, focusing on building a brighter future for everyone. And for this year only, we’ll do it in the place where TED began: Monterey, California.
A chance to co-create an unforgettable gathering of minds and souls determined to play our part. The conference will unfold as follows:
The first day of TEDMonterey begins with TED Fellows Talks from up-and-coming world-changers. In the evening, the opening session, followed by a welcome party.
Day two is three sessions of talks, plus Discovery Sessions to choose from. In the evening, we’ll gather for a special, intimate evening of conversation -- and maybe a surprise or two.
More talks, more Discovery Sessions and ever more opportunities to connect over lunches and breaks.
The climax of the week's speaker program, Wednesday morning’s epic final session will celebrate and sum up the week. Afterward, enjoy a farewell lunch with your fellow TEDsters.

Here's what you can expect at TEDMonterey:
While we’re optimistic about our ability to convene a group of people for this event in August of 2021, we’re also working to maximize health and safety.
Located on the southern edge of Monterey Bay on California's Central Coast, Monterey was home to TED from its first year in 1984 right through to 2008. A stone’s throw from Silicon Valley, Monterey County boasts the stunning white sand beaches of Carmel, sweeping views of Big Sur, legendary golf courses like Pebble Beach, an internationally renowned aquarium and an abundance of culinary delights.
Monterey Conference Center has been transformed since TED was last there. Recently renovated, this modern venue is known as a hub for innovation in the heart of Monterey City, just a couple blocks from the shore.
