TEDGlobal conference

Here's a French language report on the TED Global conference I spoke at last month, from the Swiss news magazineL'Hebdo.

I'll try my hand at a loose translation (corrections gladly accepted) of the short note about my speech: New York journalist Robert Neuwirth shocked the auditorium while projecting an image of a shantytown under the title 'the city of tomorrow.' According to him, in 2050, 3 billion people on earth will live in these favelas. Far from complaining, the author showed with fervor how their communities organize themselves and create jobs. Amazement among the assembled.
