    The TEDxToronto 2017 conference theme is “Legacy.” Legacies shape our understanding of the past, how we live in the present, and our vision for the future. Legacies are formed not only by people, but also by companies, institutions and movements.

    Each of the speakers selected are building lasting legacies for the future of technology, design, social acceptance, environmental stewardship, human rights, art, education and beyond. This carefully curated group of speakers is one that radiates passion and excitement in each of their chosen fields, breeding hope and innovation for our collective future.
