On Saturday the 18th of September 2010 the fantabulous TEDxNairobi team (shown below) organised the 2nd TEDxNairobi event at the Louis Leakey Auditorium. The theme for this year was Green City in the Sun which and indeed in all its splendour it was a truly remarkable event.

Was a Great Event!
My recommendation for the next round would be to have a ‘mini Expo’ say from 10.00 – 13.00 on the material day. People could hire small desks to showcase their ideas. There are just too many ‘GREEN ideas’ out here, you will be shocked.
