For the first time in history, the majority of the world’s population lives in cities. Some have raised fears that the COVID-19 pandemic will spell the end of city life, but cities remain vibrant centers of culture, connectivity, and opportunity.

Urban planners, developers, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs have an opportunity to seize on this moment of uncertainty and reimagine urban life. How can cities be reimagined to support local commerce, leverage on-demand tools and services, and create more walkable and vibrant neighborhoods?

The Rise of the 15-Minute Neighborhood is a free webinar exploring how new ideas are being put into practice—and their potential impact on climate change, equity and inclusion, mobility, and access to housing—to build strong, more vibrant cities.

Join Blueprint and The Aspen Institute Energy & Environment Program on November 20, 2020, at noon for a conversation featuring Professor Carlos Moreno of the Sorbonne, renowned urbanist and author Richard Florida, former New York City Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, and REEF Technology’s Global Head of Public Policy, Padden Murphy, for a discussion moderated by The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson.
