TED’s The City 2.0 is an online platform for looking into how cities are being changed by their very users.
The City 2.0 website is a platform 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.
The website hosts a collection of projects and undertakings by citizens around the world and how they aim to change their city. These range from art projects to neighbourhood interventions to smart technologies. All of them have one idea in common: how to make the city a better place for those living in it.
If you’re looking for inspiration or just great stories, then this is a great place to start.
