"The Future CITY as Experiment" Tia Kansara at TEDxKlagenfurt by TED talks (CC BY NC ND)

Then the ideal cities should be empty. It’s important to have more harmonious use of land

Tia Kansara in her speech asked the audience to twitter her their answers about the city of future. Here are some facts she answered:

A city with fearlessness, having a city where people are in the centre of it, inhabitants are integrated into the process, an amazing city is one which has the ability to give people a reason for new behaviour. A city has scars, insivisble scars, which are from the people who have lived there. My role would be to facilitate the speed in which inhabitants can take part, reason fort hat; integrate the people of the city – to form a collective view

About TEDxKlagenfurt

We passionately believe in the power of ideas in changing attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other. Klagenfurt is situated close to the borders of both Slovenia and Italy, which means the talks will attract a very international audience. In order to get a holistic view of the topic field and spread the TED spirit, a group of speakers from various countries will address the international audience in English. TEDxKlagenfurt should become one of the highlights of the Carinthian conference-scene. We already have numerous partners who are willing to support our plan to make TEDxKlagenfurt an ongoing annual event. Our goal is to establish Klagenfurt as a city for open-minded and innovative people who are hungry for knowledge.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxKlagenfurt, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxKlagenfurt event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

More about TEDx:


TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.
