On April 20, 2024 at Baker Demonstration School, TEDxWilmette presented six speakers with big ideas around the theme The Future Is Now.  The energy at this year's event was exciting and we are so glad you could join us as we explored various topics from climate to AI, media to healthcare and more!  Check back often or sign up for our mailing list to receive updates on when our talks will be posted for online viewing and future events.
