The longest running TEDxYouth event in the GTA dedicated to youth, TEDxYouth@Toronto was held this past weekend at the Ontario Science Centre. This is the fourth year this event was held. It was attended by over 200 high school students from the GTA and across Ontario. The event was watched by even more people through their livestream. This TEDx event was also chosen as the TEDxYouth anchor event, broadcasted worldwide.
This year’s theme, discovery, focuses on uncovering the new and traversed within ourselves, our communities and beyond. The theme encouraged the audience to reveal their true self, unravel the aspects of community, and experience breakthroughs through a series of inspirational talks.
The lineup of speakers, some of Toronto’s most accomplished leaders in areas of business, science, and sustainability, covers a broad spectrum of topics. One of the speakers was Katherine Hague, Co-Founder and CEO of ShopLocket. She had a very inspirational talk about how everyone should try to do what they love to do.
