TEDxGowanus Featured on TEDCity2.0

TEDCity2.org relaunches with talks from Ed Woodham and Leah Selim 

 

In 2012 the TED Prize, for the first time, went not to a person but to an idea: The City 2.0. Recognizing that the future of humanity is deeply intertwined with the future of urbanity, TEDCity2.0 is exploring deep questions about the evolution of work, transportation, inequality, consumption, and all of the ways in which cities influence the lives of its inhabitants and the world.


TEDxGowanus is proud to announce that two of our speakers are featured on the newly relaunched TEDCity2.org website.  Please watch, re-watch, and share these wonderful talks by Ed Woodham and Leah Selim.  We are also happy to see that Leah Selim is featured on the TED Blog for her talk on Gastrodiplomacy.
