The Resurgent City and the Future of Urban Environments

Pittsburgh iStock APF

Thursday October 4th to Saturday October 6th, 2018

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

WHAT: With the loss of the steel industry and manufacturing in the 1980s, many people wrote of Pittsburgh's demise. Over the last 35 years the city has experienced a renaissance and is now thriving thanks to a focus on higher education and medicine, cutting edge technology research (artificial intelligence, robotics, autonomous vehicles), radically rethinking K-12 education, and more. This gathering will use the changes that are taking place in the city of Pittsburgh as a springboard to think about how similar forces of change are shaping the future of urban environments and cities.

AGENDA: Explore the forces of change that are shaping the future of urban environments and have helped rehape the city of Pittsburgh.
