TEDxToronto Salon: The Citizen

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”
— Jane Jacobs

Overview:

Forty-four Wards, over 140 neighbourhoods and 2.5 million residents make up the city of Toronto.  We’re one of the largest cities in North America and certainly one of the most diverse.  But if our greatest asset as a city is our people, how do Torontonians become engaged citizens? With this challenge in mind, we are thrilled to announce our second TEDxToronto Salon of 2011 – The Citizen to be held on Sunday May 8th, 2011.The Day:

For The Citizen,TEDxToronto has aligned with a Toronto Jane’s WalkRegent Park Revitalizedto bring you an afternoon of discovery and conversation featuring some of TEDxToronto’s most inspiring minds.

We encourage you to join the neighbourhood walk which departs anytime between 11:00AM and 12:00PM. Just click here for details.  This walk will provide the context for the TEDxToronto Salon discussion that will follow.
