TEDTalks with Petr Koubský on topic Public Space
Oct 27 / 5.30 pm

Videos on the subject of public space, life in the city, a shared future, relationships among neighbors, artistic interventions in the city, life on this planet, and more.

Can we democratize our public space? Why don’t we become more involved in local politics, which affects us in our place of residence? Did you know that the planet is urbanizing so rapidly that a million people move to cities every week? Can you imagine what that means for you and your life in the city? Did you know that in the past 25 years, the role of oil has been decreasing and cultural activism has become a significant influence on the places where we live? And can we, as socio-economic beings living in cities, avoid cardiac arrest?

TED is a small organization devoted to ideas that are worth spreading. The history of TED began in 1984 with a conference that brought together people from three worlds: technology, entertainment, and design – TED. Since then, the conferences’ range of subjects has expanded significantly. Under the name “TEDx” people around the world organize hundreds of meetings, conferences, and projects that enable people to meet, discuss, and develop relationships. To date, more than independent 2,000 TEDx meetings have been organized in 120 countries and 26 languages.
