A worldwide day of urban inspiration

TEDXCAPETOWN CITY2.0  |  Event , ±8 min episodes total time 1 hr 49 min  | 
For us, TEDxCapeTown City2.0 means a new way of working and delivering services -- simply rebranding is not sufficient. It is not about selling more redundant technology to reinforce the failed paradigms of 200 years of industrialisation, but rather to push through, above and beyond the status quo.
