Re-imagining the city — worldwide: TEDxCity2.0 goes global
Just a few days ago, at over 100 TEDxCity2.0 events — in 48 countries — global citizens gathered together in schools, cultural centers, theaters — even a city street — to dream the city of the future.
When 70% of the world’s population live in urban areas (the year 2050, according to the UN) what will these cities look like? How will we grow our food? Power our homes? Travel?
These questions are what TEDxCity2.0 events set out to answer. Above, snapshots from some of the dozens of events across the globe — including ones in Shanghai, Austin, Milan, Melbourne, and Trieste.
