Dream me. Build me. Make me real.
Friday 20 September 2013
On Friday 20 September 2013, TED hosts TEDCity2.0 in New York, focusing on how bright urban ideas turn into collective impact through collaborative action. TEDx communities across the globe – including TEDxJohannesburg – host parallel events along the same theme.
Our event, named TEDxJohannesburgCity2.0, takes place at JoziHub on 44 Stanley, Milpark, from 12noon until 7pm. The event features talks from the bright minds and big hearts involved in remaking Johannesburg – stewards, artists, builders and tastemakers shaping a brave new future for the metropolis. They share narratives of urban innovation and transformation focusing on global City 2.0 themes – Art, Education, Food, Health, Housing, Play, Public Space, and Safety – all elements essential to the future health and success of our beloved Joburg. Thereafter we cross live to New York for talks from the TED stage. Both sides of the Atlantic will emphasise participation, with some speakers adding a call to action. So come prepared.
Expect to mix and mingle with an audience of Joburgers open to new thoughts and perspectives on how we can collectively build the Johannesburg we want.
Drinks and snacks available.
A R200 standard fee and R100 for NGOs and students cover costs.
