The focus of TED2017 is "The Future You."
The talks will focus on humanity and its shared future.

TEDxSeattle will be hosting the live stream event of TED2017 at the Seattle Tower and while tickets are free seating will be limited.
Those interested will need to register in advance to ensure their seats.
The live stream will consist of three different sets of lectures, and those attending may register for all three sets or for sets individually.
