8 talks with ideas for healthier cities

TED Blog

Cities, traditionally, have not been the healthiest of places. The spread of diseases, sanitation issues, pollution — these things accelerate with large masses of people living in close quarters. But is that the way it needs to be? Could the cities of the future also be places where all people get top-notch healthcare, and where people collectively help each other live healthfully?

At TEDCity2.0, a one-day conference being held in New York City on September 20, two dozen plus speakers will take the stage to share bold ideas on the future of cities. They will speak on topics ranging from health to housing, art to education, safety to transportation, with the talks focused around the theme“Dream me. Build me. Make me real.”

To get you excited for TEDCity2.0, and the TEDxCity2.0 events that will surround it, watch these great talks on improving health in urban areas.
