The ASPD Urban Summit is a one-day conference centered on urban planning and policy innovations that build more equitable and just cities. This inaugural event is designed to spark conversations, innovate ideas, and ignite change in pushing planners and policymakers to consider new approaches in their work. Join us in the first ever ASPD Urban Summit as we convene to discuss innovative ideas to create thriving places.
The «Ideas to Inspire» session will feature six different practitioners, researchers, and students in a brief 10-minute TED-style talk on innovative projects that they are currently working on.
The «Innovation Panel» will include a panel of urban planning experts discussing possible innovative solutions in the field and what challenges can be expected.
The «Break-Out Activity» will be an opportunity for all event participants to process the content they have heard throughout the day and pull in their own experiences for a discussion.
