"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves" -- William Shakespeare
The future is often thought of as some distant concept impossible to predict or control. However in reality, the future is now. It is something shaped by the ideas, attitudes and decisions we make. These actions collectively impact our society and dictate our future. This year's TEDxEdmonton event will challenge our speakers and audience to go beyond their comfort zones, exploring new ideas and questioning existing paradisms from a variety of disciplines. Our hope is that this year's TEDxEdmonton will inspire you to take action, and encourage you to help us build Edmonton's future, together.
