TEDxBerlin 2013 "City 2.0" TEDxBerlin City 2.0 Talks Now Online

TEDxBerlin City 2.0 was all about the city of the future. The event brought together scientists, artists and authors to tackle the big questions: How will our living conditions change as urban populations swell? What about health care, energy, and transport? And what qualities must the City 2.0 have in order to be a livable place? How will our living conditions change as urban populations swell? What about health care, energy, and transport? And what qualities must the City 2.0 have in order to be a livable place? 

The TEDxBerlin City 2.0 speakers warned of the danger of complete interconnectedness, battled with social developments and the need for every single person to be part of the solution and looked at technological developments to meet the needs brought by environmental changes. Light was shed on issues, discussions were revived, and perspectives were shifted. Speakers spoke of their personal experiences in contributing to innovation and change and in doing so encouraged and inspired the attentive audience to jump on board. The overarching conclusion: The City 2.0 is what we make of it!
