TEDxCity2.0: A Day of Urban Inspiration - This Saturday!

TEDxCity2.0: A Day of Urban Inspiration - This Saturday!

After months of anticipation, October 13th, 2012 (a.k.a. TEDxCity2.0: A day of urban inspiration), is around the corner! This Saturday, TEDx communities around the world, made up of “urban innovators and organizers, stewards and artists, builders and taste makers,” will get together and share their stories of urban inspiration.

Instead of giving the TED Prize to an individual this year, the TED committee recognized a theme, The City 2.0. So far, they’ve published hundreds of awesome urban interventions on their web platform and given individual prizes to 6 of the most transformative ideas (including a “Wikipedia” of house-building and a “storefront” for urban innovation); 4 prizes remain to be granted.

The event will be a great physical counterpart to all the inspiring work that has been shared online – and a brilliant opportunity to connect with others who are passionate about the City of the Future. You can find out where a TEDxCity2.0 event is happening near you (or register one of your own), here.
