ted city 2.0

TEDCity2.0 was a day-long event held at the Times Center in New York, in celebration of urban innovation around the globe and in anticipation of emerging issues in population, health, education, architecture, engineering, transportation, environment, and sustainability.

thankfully the goodies are uploaded on livestream for people like me on the other side of the planet. you can watch all the talks in the TEDCity2.0 archive.

session 1 featured redefining what it means to be citizen. i especially liked atlanta mayor kasim reed's speech who was trying to charm the audience into why mayors should rule the world.

session 2 was about reinventing the urban experience.

session 3 was all about reimagining the concept of city.

session 4 discussed how we can redraw geographies and learning from other countries.
