A Sense of Purpose: TEDxToronto Announces Second Set of Speakers

TEDx Speakers Round 2From an urban designer to a Buddhist to a professor to an activist, our latest round of speakers exemplifies how life-changing certain moments can be. They illustrate how our individual and collective choices – both big and small – can set us on new paths.

“From advocates to spiritualists, our second set of speakers feel a strong sense of purpose that has guided them to pursue action,” said Afshin Mousavian, chair and co-organizer of TEDxToronto. “They are sure to spark similar feelings in our audience, urging us all to see the world from a different perspective and drive positive change.”
