Kali Taylor discusses "Activating Communities" at TEDxYYC 2012.Kali developed a passion for community building at a young age being raised in a small town where she sat on various community initiative committees and formed one of Alberta's first youth councils. From this she went on to consult small, rural communities on how to better engage youth.Kali found her passion for the energy industry when she began working in the industry as an analyst at the young age of 19 while studying for her Bachelor of Commerce in Energy Management at the University of Calgary. While simultaneously working and studying, Kali also gave back to the business school community by participating in various student initiatives. Most notably, Kali chaired the planning of the inaugural International Student Energy Summit that brought 350 students from 30 countries to Calgary to learn from leading energy experts. Kali then founded the not-for-profit, Student Energy, that works to create a global movement of students committed to transitioning the world to a sustainable energy future.Kali has received numerous awards for her dedication and leadership in community activities including the Premier's Citizenship Award, Queen Elizabeth II Citizenship Medal, the National Millennium Leadership Scholarship, the Haskayne School of Business Action Award and Outstanding Graduate Award, and was named one of Canada's Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 in 2011.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)
