Rapidly growing populations and increasingly scarce resources are two of the biggest challenges that cities face today. But how are policymakers, developers, entrepreneurs and designers responding to these issues? For the third year in a row, the New York Times’ Cities for Tomorrow conference will bring together the world’s top urban-thinkers to discuss what’s being done to enact change that will positively shape our expanding urbanscape. This year’s panels will focus in on analyzing winning urban formulas that have helped cities thrive, including the addition of food halls, advanced transit, public/private partnerships, and new approaches to education.
This July 18-19th, join hosts Times senior editor Charles Duhigg and Big City columnist Ginia Bellafante, and speakers such as Jeanne Gang, Danny Meyer, Edward Glaeser, Allison Arieff for nearly 20 riveting talks and discussions.
