TEDxTokyoSalon Vol.3 – ”Future of the City”

Applications for this event have now ended. Thank you to everyone who has applied to join our event. We will notify applicants who are selected for the tickets by email on March 23rd.


Starting in 2015 TEDxTokyo will hold a series of salon events called TEDxTokyoSalon. The reasoning behind creating a Salon is to build up a stronger intellectual community and enable people that have “Ideas Worth Spreading” to connect at various locations throughout Tokyo. With a theme of “Future of the City”, the third TEDxTokyoSalon will be held on March 25, 2016. .

Needless to say, diversity of a city fuels creativity and brings out new cultures. Nowadays, it is said that City is the source of diversity, creation of demands, development of new products and services, as well as employment creation and it is “City” that leads the economy growth. During our session, we hope our participants bring out the “creative power of City”, and share their ideas of “What kind of society we want to live” and “What the future of our city will be”.

As special guests, Elizaveta, a performer at TED Global, and Ting Kelly, Research Fellow of Long Now Foundation built by Stewart Brand, who is the daughter of the founding executive editor of WIRED magazine, will also show up in our sessions.
