Learning From Other Cities: 2019 Urban Studies Forum (Tacoma, 2/21/2019)
Posted: 2/4/2019 (Local Events)
“Learning From Other Cities,” the theme for the 2019 Urban Studies Forum, will bring together key presentations from cities, whose practices could inform our local approaches to governance and community development.
· 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. In addition, keynote speaker Michael J. Rich from Emory University will discuss collaborative governance and urban revitalization.
The selected topics connect with planning and policy issues in the South Puget Sound and will be of interest to our leadership as well as community members.
Time: 8:45 AM - 2:30 PM
Location: William W. Philip Hall, UW Tacoma
