The National Urbanism Next Conference is almost here, but there’s still time to register! It’s going to be a jam-packed couple of days full of information, ideas, and insights—we hope you’ll join us!
On Tuesday, May 7 we’ll be hosting a series of half-day workshops at the White Stag Building, along with a full-day workshop geared towards elected officials and government leaders. Workshops are filling up, so be sure to register soon if you’re interested in getting into of those! (We will be offering a wait list for those that are already full.) On Tuesday evening, we’ll be heading over to Urban Studio for a round of fun and fast-paced lightning talks.
We’ll be moving over to the Oregon Convention Center on Wednesday, May 8 and the morning will be filled with a series of plenaries about e-commerce and last mile delivery, public-private partnerships, new mobility and transit, the opportunity to re-forest cities, and how climate, economy, and health outcomes can be translated into tangible change. The afternoon will be full of breakout sessions covering a wide range of Urbanism Next-related topics, and the day will be capped off with an evening reception.
On Thursday, May 9 we’ll be kicking off the day with a plenary about why racial equity matters in mobility. Attendees will then have a slew of great breakout sessions to choose from throughout the day, with a lunch that will be accompanied by a discussion about mobility-as-a-service.
Whether it’s senior housing in the smart technology era, how transportation changes impact municipal budgets, micromobility pilot programs, or labor considerations for the gig economy, we’ll be talking about it in just two short weeks in Portland!
