What will the city of the future look like? According to the United Nations, by the year of 2050, 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Questions dominate our conception of the “City 2.0”: How will we transport ourselves? Where will we grow our food? How will we power our homes, our offices, our cities? What will happen to the natural world?
On October 13, 2012, communities across the globe will be asking these questions as part of TEDxCity2.0 day, a day during which nearly 70 TEDx events will be held in conjunction to dream the city of the future.
To celebrate the City 2.0 and the spirit of urban inspiration, here are 5 great TEDxTalks on the future of cities across the globe.
