2019 Urban Studies Forum: Learning from other Cities
WhenThursday, Feb. 21, 2019, 8:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.


“Learning From Other Cities,” the theme for the 2019 Urban Studies Forum, is a chance to take best practice 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.

Keynote speaker Dr. Michael J. Rich will present "Collaborative Governance and Urban Revitalization: City Strategies for Reducing Poverty and Inequality."

8:45 AM - 2:30 PM : Learning from Other Cities
