Boston Futures: 2024 and Beyond

Boston Futures is a community discussion series about the future of Boston and how Boston’s Olympic and Paralympic bid might help us achieve a shared vision for that future. Free and open to the public, these conversations will explore how hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024 could help catalyze progress on key initiatives and ideas that will define Boston in the year 2030, the city’s 400th anniversary, and beyond. Intended to engage designers, planners, innovators, and more, this series provides attendees the opportunity to ask questions, gain additional insight from experts who have faced similar challenges, and consider the possibilities for Boston's future. 

Planned topics for discussion include mobility, housing, open space, sustainability, health, and innovation.

Boston Futures is co-organized by the following participating hosts: Boston 2024, Boston Society of Architects/AIA and the BSA Foundation, Boston Society of Landscape Architects, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, MIT School of Architecture and Planning, Northeastern University School of Architecture, ULI Boston, and The Venture Café.
