On April 20, 2024 at Baker Demonstration School, TEDxWilmette will present six speakers with big ideas around the theme The Future Is Now.  The pace of change in our world brings what once felt futuristic into the present.  From climate to AI, media to healthcare, we face big technological, ethical and social questions, and the answers have implications not only for our shared future but also for our common present.


At TEDxWilmette 2024, we will explore how to navigate these issues when The Future Is Now.  


Do you have one big idea worth sharing about how we can unleash the incredible potential of our new reality? We are now accepting speaker applications for our April 20, 2024 event and encourage you to apply if you have a game-changing idea that can shape our future.
