Toronto’s Digital Minimalism Meetup Group

TODigitalMinimalism

Toronto’s Digital Minimalism is a group for digital minimalists, and individuals interested in practicing digital minimalism and digital wellness.

Using Cal Newport’s definition, digital minimalism is a philosophy of technology use in which you focus your online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimized activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else.

We hope to create a space for likeminded individuals to meet and exchange ideas to radically transforming their digital lives!
