Join us for an interactive panel discussion about the role of citizens, urban planners, and technology in the shaping of cities, lead by Urban Planner, Designer and Educator – Mike Ernst.
Today, more people worldwide live in cities than not. The need to make smart, well-informed decisions about how and where people live, work and play is more important than ever. As technology develops at a rapid pace, allowing decision-makers to have access to more information than ever before, inequality can limit the voice of those without digital access.
Join us in a discussion about participatory urban planning: how do we shape our built environment in ways that are democratic, sustainable, and equitable? What are the technologies out there that can allows us to make better-informed decisions, and what the barriers to their use? How do we make cities that are both economically robust and inclusive?
