Thank you for all your support in making TEDxToronto: Renew 2022 a success. We hope to see you again at our next event!



To renew takes effort and determination.  It is a chance to begin again: to reflect on the past, and challenge the status quo.  

When you believe you can renew your life, your connections, your values, you’re able to have hope in a brighter future and faith you can create it.

2022 calls on us all to RENEW.

Renew spans three thoughtfully curated evenings where you’ll encounter critical new ideas, be inspired to think differently, and engage in meaningful dialogue with fellow curious souls.

Join us for one evening, or all three!




Enjoy a night out at one of Toronto’s iconic cultural institutions, with talks held in the ROM’s beautiful Eaton Theatre, and a post-event reception in the Rotunda.

Join us for one evening, or all three

Our event series has been designed to take you on a journey, exploring what it means to Renew in 2022.

Renewing How We Build

We’re an entirely volunteer-run non-profit, and your ticket purchase goes directly to funding the costs of putting on these events.
