    Introducing the First Round of Speakers for TEDxToronto 2017

    On October 27, 2017, we will unveil our 9th annual TEDxToronto conference: Legacy. In selecting this year’s speakers, we sought out individuals who are true trailblazers in their fields; people who are not only shaping their own legacies but those of the businesses, movements, and communities they are part of.

    MEET THE FIRST ROUND OF SPEAKERS
    Visionaries, educators, activists, and community leaders.

    Things to do at Evergreen Brick Works on Canada Day 2017

    We couldn’t be more excited that TEDxToronto 2017 will be hosted Evergreen Brick Works! Leading a legacy of its own, Evergreen Brick Works has been supporting thousands of community projects and activating more green public spaces in not only the city of Toronto, but across Canada. Historically known as the Don Valley Pressed Brick Works Company, many of the bricks used to construct some of Toronto’s most prominent landmarks, such as Massey Hall and Casa Loma, came from this very spot!

    From Local to Global: 7 TEDxToronto Talks Featured on TED.com

    With the growing TEDx community worldwide, TEDx Talks are taking place each day. While these events feature local talent, they all possess a common mission to share “ideas worth spreading”. We are lucky to have 7 TEDxToronto Talks featured on TED.com. This speaks volumes to the calibre of speakers we have had on our stage.

    From the TEDxToronto stage to TED.com, this is the chance to reminisce and honour their influence and contribution to the community and beyond. While their stories began in Toronto, their legacies continue to create an impact globally.

    Here are 7 TEDxToronto talks you don’t want to miss (you may even want to watch them again!):

    TEDxToronto Talks on Technology You Must Watch

    Technologies are the material manifestations of legacies. We shape our tools, and as a result, they continue to shape us. Borrowing McLuhan’s seminal aphorism, medium is the message, we must understand technologies as more than just vessels that transmit information. Instead, we must see technology as information itself. The very technologies we produce are a reflection of the kind of world we exist in.

    The technologies of the past have brought us to where we are today. The technologies of the present will affect what will come tomorrow. Where do we see technology evolving in the future? We’ve collected a series of TEDxToronto technology talks from a wide range of sectors, from transportation to virtual reality and surveillance.
