In 2012, for the first time ever, the TED Prize went not to an individual, but to an idea on which our planet's future depends: the City 2.0. Coinciding with the TEDCity2.0 anchor event, TEDxCity2.0 is an initiative in the spirit of TEDxYouthDay, TEDxChange and TEDxWomen.
About TEDxCity2.0 events
A TEDxCity2.0 type event must occur on September 20th, 2013. Speakers should speak to official City 2.0 themes, including Art, Education, Food, Health, Housing, Play, Public Space and Safety. Events can also show one or more sessions of TEDCity2.0 -- the TED-hosted event coinciding with the TEDxCity2.0 initiative.
Naming conventions are the same as standard TEDx events (e.g. TEDxAmsterdam, not TEDxAmsterdamCity) if you have an existing license, your event should be organized under that name. If you are a first-time TEDx licensee, the official name of your event is TEDx(LocationName): we consider locations as city, town, neighborhood and street names.
Please review the TEDx guidelines before applying.
