Today, cities across the world are shaped by new forms of urbanism, a growing awareness of environmental challenges, and evolving cultural identities. The focus of this two-day program is on developing a broader understanding of how the master planner or designer’s skills contribute to more resilient cities and futures. Panel discussions, field work and interactive activities will explore environmental, economic, and social issues. The sessions will provide perspectives from planners, urban designers, artists, technologists, economists, ecologists, and developers.

Participants will use the City of Boston as a laboratory and case study throughout the course, learning from local and international experts, touring key sites and working together to synthesize case studies and their own observations. A series of presentations and discussions will lay the foundation for the course and introduce the breadth of environmental, economic, and social issues that must be addressed at all scales. The panelists will include planners, public officials urban designers, artists, technologists, economists, ecologists, and developers.
