Tedx City2.0 – a global conversation

TEDx Leeds City20

TEDx Leeds City20

Today, in places like London, Vancouver, Egypt, and Bolivia and Leeds, a global conversation about the city of the future will unfold.

What’s TEDxCity2.0, you ask? Well, deep in the heart of New York City, TED is throwing this big TEDCity2.0 event — a day-long tribute to the places (cities!) that, according to the UN, 70% of the world’s population will inhabit by 2050. At TEDCity2.0, over 20 speakers — experts in everything from architecture to transportation to sanitation — will share big ideas about collaborative action and sustainable solutions for urban innovation.

And while TED takes over New York, in 43 countries across the globe, local thinkers, doers, and changemakers will gather together in their own cities at TEDxCity2.0 events to watch TEDCity2.0 and envision the city of the future with TED.
