TEDCity2.0 is a day-long TED event for urban innovators, organizers, stewards and builders - with live speakers, global conversations and activities. On September 20, 2013, TEDCity2.0 will take place at the TimesCenter in New York City. This event is a livestream of the final session of the day, co-curated and co-hosted by Chris Anderson. These speakers will surface stories of urban ingenuity and interdependence from across the globe, and feature an unexpected mix of speakers sharing big ideas about collaborative action and sustainable solutions.

Livestreamed talks include:

+ Transportation evangelist Enrique Peñalosa turned Bogota into an international model for pedestrian life
+ Photographer Iwan Baan captures life in informal communities, including the world's most notorious vertical slum
+ Impact designer Alan Ricks believes the global south has something to teach the global north about beauty
+ Burkina Faso architect Diébédo Francis Kéré creates elegance using local crafts and materials
+ Writer Joshunda Sanders, who's remapping the mental urban landscape with memoir

Tasty food and delightful beverages provided.
