TEDxCity2.0: A day of urban inspiration - San Francisco

October 13, 2012

Cosanti Foundation President Jeff Stein delivers a TED talk about Arcosanti, Arcology and Lean Linear Cities at Madrone Studios media lab, San Francisco, as part of a day of Global Ted Conferences: TEDxCity2.0.

TEDxCity2.0 will be a day when TEDx communities around the world will host an event to share the powerful narratives of urban innovators and organizers, stewards and artists, builders and tastemakers. The TEDx platform will harness the power of people across the globe to encourage them to host a TEDx event, themed "City 2.0."

The City 2.0 is a forum created to surface the myriad stories and collective actions being taken by citizens around the world. We draw on the best of what is already being discovered by urban advocates and add grassroots movers and shakers into the mix. What's emerging is a complex picture of the future city--a place more playful, more safe, more beautiful, and more healthy for everyone.

Other speakers at the conference "TEDxMission" in San Francisco include Peter Calthorp, Geoff Lawton, Brock Dolman, Craig Scott, Thomas Reed, Mark Sigler and Jules Dervaes.
