The Urbanism Next Virtual Forum is an interactive conversation about new mobility, mobility as a service, and e-commerce in the midst of global disruption.
We are excited to be able to transfer our in-person conference to an online platform on May 14th. The Forum brings together an interdisciplinary group of leaders 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.
This timely conversation will address the short-term impacts and consider the long-term effects that disruption - whether 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 this timely discussion 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!
The Virtual Forum will be followed by a series of monthly webinars starting in June 2020. Access to this entire series of webinars is included in the price of the Virtual Forum! Visit urbanismnext.org/conference to learn more - the complete event schedule will be available in the coming weeks.
