What does it mean to rise today?
So many things are on the rise: new technologies and businesses, political movements, online communities, the temperature—our city.
Some of these forces are long overdue. Our awareness, for instance, of the experiences of women, the history of Indigenous people, and of other too-often-ignored voices deserving of attention. Other rising forces have sparked important conversations about a decline in meaningful relationships, the role of big technology companies in society, and whether the GTA’s prosperity is truly felt in all corners of our region.
Rise is optimistic, as well as ominous. TEDxToronto 2019 will explore that inherent tension and ask: what does it take for all of us, as a society, to rise together?
