Rob Shirkey is a Canadian lawyer and founder of Our Horizon, a not-for-profit climate change organization based in Toronto that empowers people and communities across Canada to change the world. Rob's life goal is simple: when a kid asks him "What did you do to stop climate change?" he wants to be able to look that kid in the eye and honestly say he did everything he could.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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)
