"All great things have their origins in that which is small" said philosopher Lao Tzu. Likewise, all great cities had humble origins as small towns. Singapore was founded because of an idea that a small sandy island could become a great place for trade of goods across the world. In this 21st Century, the trade of our ideas, inspiration and inventiveness is now the most valuable exchange between humans.
How can we build our Singapore to become a great City of Ideas in a planet of interconnected ideas?
TEDxCity2.0 was a day of imagineering inspiring ideas, dynamic conversations and brainstorming Ideas To Build Idea Cities.
This was TEDxSingapore's 18th event since we were founded in April 2009.
