TEDx at York!
TEDx is an international community that organizes TED-style events anywhere to celebrate locally driven ideas and elevate them to a global stage. TEDx events are produced independently of TED conferences, as each event curates’ speakers on their own, but based on TED’s format and rules. Due to COVID-19, the proposed TEDx at York University may not be able to bring together the hundreds of students to engage on AHRAP and AHRAP-NET, highlighting Canada’s role in this process and presenting the academic community’s input to the development of AHRAP. This will however take place online but still involving the avant-garde youth focused audience at York, speakers will comprise of experts from the field presenting key insights on the AHRAP’s engagement on issues such as free movement of persons, goods, services and capital; peace, security and conflict prevention; Women’s rights and economic integration and development; and democratic elections and political power succession.
