TEDxOttawa 2019 is almost here! Join us for an amazing night of “Ideas Worth Spreading”. The theme this year is SOLVING FOR X: there are many variables in our world today, and each speaker will be exploring their different takes on how they would solve for them – some topics include social media, the environment, public transportation, and important social issues.
Join us for an inspirational, community-minded experience!
We are pleased to present an amazing line up of speakers that have prepared inspirational and educational talks on a variety of interesting and eye-opening topics.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less.
x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
