TEDxWinnipeg 2017 is June 6, 2017
From a record number of applications to speak, we have selected some engaging speakers and ideas. The first group of Speakers for 2017 have been announced, with more to follow in the coming weeks.
Mike Johnston is a slam poet (both champion and community builder), a scientist (teacher and National Geographic Grosvenor Fellow), an adventurer and a seeker of stories, guided by the stars and his desire to see the poetry in the science that connects us all. On June 6, he’ll be at TEDxWinnipeg, speaking about his love of science, poetry, and the constellations that bring the two together. To get to know Mike a bit better, we asked him seven questions.
Johanna Hurme is an architect who believes design and architecture can provide answers to pressing modern problems. She’ll be speaking at TEDxWinnipeg on June 6. We asked Johanna a few questions to get to know her better before the big day.
What is your idea worth spreading?
The importance of designing compact, walkable cities and directing growth inwards (as opposed to sprawl).
