The annual prize is a grant that goes to an individual or organization with “One Wish to Change the World.” The prize looks to take advantage of the wide-ranging TED network to collaboratively help address an important issue. This year’s issue is that of urbanization, with a City 2.0 website that seeks to connect people, resources, and ideas within cities all around the world.
