TEDxTT 2012: “Social Capital and the No Tankers Movement,” Ryan Vandecasteven

In 2010, UBC Alumni Ryan Vandecasteven spent two months kayaking down the coast of British Columbia to gain insight into the potential impacts from a proposed oil pipeline and subsequent increase of super tanker traffic. Here, he shares how this experience, and his interactions with both the environment and the communities involved, have deeply influenced his views.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
