Participatory Urban Planning: Crafting Democratic Cities in the Digital Age
Wix Lounge (10 West 18th St., 2nd Fl., Manhattan)
6pm
Free, RSVP requested

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?
