Urbanism Next webinars bring together an interdisciplinary group of industry professionals to discuss how emerging technologies shape the future of our cities. Advances in emerging technology such as the rise of e-commerce, the proliferation of new mobility, and the growth of the sharing economy are having profound effects not only on how we live, move, and spend our time in cities, but also increasingly on urban form and development.
These monthly conversations will address the short-term impacts and consider the long-term effects that disruption - whether it be from the introduction of new technologies, companies suddenly pulling out of markets, or a global pandemic - may have on communities. How will these changes impact equity, health and safety, the economy, and the environment? How should governments respond? What additional education, outreach, and research is needed to understand these changes and respond to them?
Join these exciting and timely discussions along with hundreds of innovative planners, architects, landscape architects, developers, technology experts, elected officials, and academics from around the world - without stepping outside of your home!
