Creating Communities That Sustain Our World
It is becoming increasingly clear that the world is changing faster than our institutions are able to respond. More broadly, this implies that planning practices rooted in the twentieth century may no longer be adequate to address twenty-first-century problems. If we are to build smart, livable, and resilient communities, we need to reexamine our assumptions and reboot our thinking about what it means to plan for a rapidly evolving world.
This year's event will change the way you think about the planning practice. You'll hear from your colleagues and GIS experts about smart planning technology and geodesign techniques that will help you evaluate planning proposals against possible outcomes, engage diverse voices, and communicate effectively across departments and with the public.
