Speaker Applications are Open for Collingwood’s Outdoor Edit Speaker Series: “How To Be Outside”

A speaker series devoted to outdoor adventure, inspiration + motivation


COLLINGWOOD, ON    |    APRIL 18, 2020

Come for an evening of motivating, inspirational talks around the different ways we can interact with the world outside, in one of the best places to be outside: Collingwood, Ontario.  The town is home to thousands of athletes, from runners to cyclists to surfers to climbers to skiers to downhill MTBers and every other sport in between. So why aren’t we talking about it?

The How To Be Outside evening event will feature speakers presenting short (sub-15 minute) presentations on a variety of topics around the idea of How to Be Outside. There will also be plenty of time for attendees to speak with local outdoors groups and clubs. The Gaiety Theatre is in downtown Collingwood on the Main Street and can fit 250+ attendees. A large open area above the theater seats will be used for local groups and sponsors to promote their clubs and events and provide information to members of the outdoors community.

  • Where: Gaiety Theatre in Downtown Collingwood
  • When: April 18 6-10PM
  • Who: 10 outdoor professionals speaking on a wide variety of topics


The event will be similar to a TED Talk event, with speakers presenting on different topics around the main question of ‘How to be Outside.’ Speaker topics currently include how to start an outdoors movement, how to get more kids playing outside—without signing them up for youth sports, and how to step back from racing in order to start competing.
