Cities have largely been the same since the dawn of the industrial revolution and rise of the automobile. The ways we design and build them are outdated. The dual crises we face this decade—the COVID crisis and the climate crisis—are forcing us to re-examine and change the ways our cities are designed and built.
How can we reimagine the process of urban planning in a way that is more equitable, just, and environmentally sustainable?
The second event in our Future of Cities Townhall series, A New Era for Cities is a free webinar traversing the many facets of this question and exploring a new blueprint for our cities.
Join Blueprint and The Aspen Institute Energy & Environment Program on January 22, 2021, at noon ET for a conversation moderated by CityLab’s Nicole Flatow and featuring Miami-Dade County Mayor, Daniella Levine Cava; founder of The Canoa Supply Co., Federico Negro; founder of Continuum Partners, Mark Falcone; and Professor of Urbanism at the University of Chicago Emily Talen.
