As a car manufacturer focusing on future technologies, Nissan partners with TED for its Future:Today exhibition – centred on the zero-emission Nissan LEAF.
TED is a non-profit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Located at the Youngstorget in Oslo, the exhibition is a future-facing showcase of work from some of the biggest names from the worlds of technology, arts, design, architecture and engineering.
The TEDx programme gives communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate meaningful dialogue at a local level.
Taking place on 13 October, TEDxCity2.0 is a day of urban inspiration when TEDx communities around the world will host an event to share the powerful narratives of urban innovators and organizers, stewards and artists, builders and tastemakers.
Speakers may focus on official City 2.0 themes, including art, education, food, health, housing, play, public space, and safety – all elements whose presence will dictate the success of future cities.
In conjunction with TED, Nissan will be supporting TEDxYoungstorget, an Olso-based TEDxCity2.0 day event, at its Future:Today exhibition space.
The event at Youngstorget will feature talks from inventor and environmentalist Cesar Harada and sustainable designer Siv Helene Stangeland, and attendees will also get the opportunity to see Django Novo perform live in the intimate setting.
The Future:Today tour starts in Oslo from 09 October to 14 October, before moving to Bergen (18-25 October) and Stockholm (09-16 November).
During the Swedish leg of the 6 week tour there will also be further opportunity to attend.
