Future of Cities Summit Recording
The Hill presented the Future of Cities in January as a virtual live event. U.S. cities are diverse, dynamic, and constantly evolving. The COVID-19 pandemic sped up this evolution, pressure testing our infrastructure, economies, and collective strength. But with added challenges come increased opportunities to reshape our existing structures and build more sustainable cityscapes, enhancing economic stability and improving the lives of all residents, especially the most vulnerable.
With the passage of the infrastructure bill and the promises within the Build Back Better agenda, what comes next for America’s cities? How can city leaders work with communities to strengthen connections across cultures and generations, allowing all residents to prosper? And finally, as we envision the city of tomorrow, what pitfalls should we sidestep and what new heights can we expect to climb?
