TEDxGöteborg 2013 – Crossroads

When: 05 Nov
9 am - 6 pm

Location: Draken, Järntorget, Göteborg

Architect Mikael Stenqvist will speak at TEDXGöteborg on the theme What is the best way to move a city?

Mikael Stenqvist is responsible for getting it right when northern Kiruna gets a whole new city center, necessary to make room for underground mining. Kiruna’s challenge may be unique in scale, but urban areas all around the world are bound for major change, according to Mikael Stenqvist. From unattractive spread-out towns, city planning is moving towards higher complexity and variety in network societies. Living cities ahead!

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxGöteborg is a local, self-organized non-profit event that has brought people together to share a TED-like experience since 2009. At a TEDxGöteborg event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
