TEDxSFU:Shift Speaker Application 2017
Theme Description
Humankind is defined by shifts in perspective, a necessary catalyst for inspiring action. TEDxSFU: Shift aims to recognize, characterize and question our ideas, philosophies and environments. Uniting societal leaders in a focused unearthing of shifting paradigms. Each shift represents a clarified vision, and a crystal clear alternative to a life-altering decision. By pulling together the fibres that compose epiphanies, we seek to evoke breakthroughs in and throughout our communities.

TEDxSFU 2017 encourages community members to shift their filter, take-on an objective lense, and step outside the bounds of habitual action. By listening to the experiences of our speakers and empathizing with their defining insights, we urge communities to breakthrough relics of thought and take action towards an enlightened future.

In what ways have you shifted humankind? What is your idea worth spreading?
