Each year at the TED conference in Long Beach, there is a prize given for a wish. Something that will profoundly make the world better. Back in XXX our dear friend and inspiration Cameron Sinclair won the TED prize for his wish for the Open Architecture Network. This year, the powerful TED wish asks us all to build the city that the future needs. Visit theCity2.Org to join in.

Here’s the full text of this inspiring wish:

I am the crucible of the future.

I am where humanity will either flourish or fade.

I am being built and rebuilt every day.

I am inevitable. But I am not yet determined.

I wish to be inclusive, innovative, healthy, soulful, thriving. But my potential can only be reached through you.

You can forge a new urban outlook. Begin by connecting. Imagine a platform that brings you together, locally and globally. Combine the reach of the cloud with the power of the crowd. Connect leaders, experts, companies, organizations and citizens. Share your tools, data, designs, successes, and ideas. Turn them into action.

Together you can:
Bridge the gap between poor and rich communities.
Spectacularly reduce your carbon footprint.
Make nature part of daily life.
Empower entrepreneurship.
Re-imagine education.
Nurture health.

I am the City 2.0. Dream me. Build me. Make me real.
