Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 7pm
The Town Hall, New York, NY

TEDGlobal>NYC will be held in Manhattan on the early evening of Wednesday, September 20, 2017, with a mission to catalyze new thinking about world issues.

We live in a time when the advance toward a more connected, united, understanding world feels in peril. Has globalization gone too far too fast? And what could we do — together — about it? Some voices are demanding a retreat to insular nations battling for their own interests. But most of the big problems we face are collective in nature and global in scope.

It’s never been more important to find compelling new ideas about our future.

TEDGlobal>NYC takes place the same week as the gathering in New York of the United Nations General Assembly, and welcomes visitors from the UN as well as myriad other global thinkers and doers who are in New York that week.
