Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now

Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now

It's where we started in 2010, with "Humanity 3.0: Leadership the World Needs Now" as our first event. We explored the linked themes of conflict, poverty, youth and elders at our very first TEDxCalgary event, and featured speakers like Naheed Nenshi, Nick Nissley, and many other courageous speakers who believed in what we were doing, and lent us their talents on stage.
