The TEDxToronto team is excited to be announcing this year’s powerful and thought-provoking conference theme: THRESHOLDS.

A threshold is a doorway. Whether physical or figurative, crossing or not crossing a threshold often results in profound change. Sometimes a threshold is a boundary and sometimes a breaking point. It can be a beginning – a starting point for an experience, an event, or a new age. Or a threshold can be an ending, a point of no return, a Rubicon across which one cannot look back.Thresholds can be the point where personal decisions are confronted and public movements are launched. Each day, humanity crosses technological, political, scientific and environmental thresholds with far-reaching consequences we may not yet understand.

Returning for its seventh year, the conference will be held at The Royal Conservatory of Music on October 22, 2015.
