2019 Urban Studies Forum
February 21, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pmFree
“Learning From Other Cities,” the theme for the 2019 Urban Studies Forum, is a chance to take best practices used elsewhere and create our own local adaptations. This year’s forum includes leadership, planners and researchers from four cities.
Bristol, U.K. (Inclusive governance)
Leeds, U.K. (child-centered city)
New York, NY (coalition building and community development)
Long Beach, CA (urban planning in a port city)
All presentations will focus on the role of inclusivity and coalition building in shaping policy, planning, and governance environments that advance urban conditions and create a more participatory decision making process. In addition to representatives from the invited cities, our keynote speaker will discuss coalition building case studies from various jurisdictions in the U.S.
