While humans may be the most adaptable species on the planet, only certain habitats make us happiest, healthiest, and most productive. Neuroscience and the medical professions can now help us clearly define those habitats.

Sex, Neuroscience and The City


Yet another reason not to miss TEDxSacramento's TEDxCity2.0

: We are excited to announce that Jeffrey Tumlin will be speaking about Sex, Neuroscience, and The City. 

 Jeffrey is an owner and strategy director at Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, a San Francisco-based transportation planning and engineering firm that focuses on sustainable mobility.

Over the past 20 years, he has led station area, downtown, citywide, and campus plans, and delivered various lectures and classes, in 20 U.S. states and five other countries. His major development projects have succeeded in reducing their traffic and CO2 emissions by as much as 40%, and accommodated many millions of square feet of growth with no net increase in motor vehicle traffic.

These projects have won awards from the General Services Administration, American Planning Association, American Society of Landscape Architects, Congress for the New Urbanism, and Urban Land Institute. He is the author of Sustainable Transportation: Tools for Creating Healthy, Vibrant and Resilient Communities, published by Wiley in 2012.

Sacramento and TED's City2.0 Day

Sacramento has been selected to be a part of TED's City2.0 Day, a global event during which cities from around the world will be sharing ideas around the theme of the future of our cities. Sept 20, we will be bringing in great thinkers and doers who are making great things happen in cities around the globe to share their ideas and stories. Such topics as art, education, food, housing, play, public spaces, urban design, health, safety, technology and transportation will be discussed as well as a series of calls to action for our city by local change-makers who are trying to make a difference.  


TEDxSacramento presents TEDxCity2.0, an independently organized TED event for urban innovators, organizers, stewards and builders - with live speakers, streamed speakers from TEDCity2.0 in New York City, live performances, and the ability to coalesce around specific calls to action for our city.  

Expect to be challenged. Expect to be inspired.
