It will last from Monday, March 17 at 10:30 a.m. PST through Friday, March 21 at 1 p.m. PST (see program schedule here). The webstream is a live event meant to be broadcast to a large screen or projector where people can watch together. All applicants are subject to approval.

“The education community is integral to everything we do at TED,” said TED Community Director Tom Rielly. “What better way to celebrate educators and NGOs from our new home in Vancouver, a city that has welcomed us with incredible warmth and enthusiasm, than to open up our conference to their constituents?”
