TED has also invited accredited secondary schools, universities, libraries, community centres and NGOs to apply for a free webstream of the conference here.

The city of Vancouver has overwhelmed us with its generosity and support,” said TED Community Director Tom Rielly. “In 30 years, we’ve never offered a live public broadcast to our host city, but this year we wanted to show thanks to the community that has welcomed us so warmly.”

The TED2014 Conference kicks off Monday, March 17 in the Vancouver Convention Centre and lasts through Friday, March 21. This marks TED’s 30th anniversary conference, and the first year the event will be held in Vancouver.
