The Future of Cities and the Power of Design Thinking
Organized by the Harvard Club of Minnesota, this event features a timely conversation about density, sustainability, economic development and more with Tom Fisher and Catherine Malmberg.
Signup deadline Sunday, October 21.
Envisioning what we need, when it doesn’t yet exist: this is what design does. If what we need now is a better world with functioning schools, working infrastructure, and thriving cities, why not design one? The “invisible” systems we depend on for our daily lives (in education, politics, economics, and public health) are designed every bit as much as the products we buy and the environments we inhabit—and they are just as susceptible to creative reimagining. Many municipalities including Minneapolis and St. Paul are actively immersed in the Comprehensive Planning process for 2040. Whether you are deeply engaged in urban planning or simply curious as to what all the fuss is about, this conversation will touch on issues that impact all of us.
