Urban Growth Challenges and Social Justice: Learning From the Past and Looking Towards the Future

Event typesAcademics, Conferences, Lectures/Seminars

The connections between urban growth and social justice are complex. The current housing affordability crisis, increasing income disparity, and threats of natural disasters are felt disproportionately by those without voice and power in our current political and economic structure. As we look to the future, how can we learn from past lessons to meaningfully address the challenges of growth by considering problems and approaches through a lens of social justice?

This symposium will provide a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue with thought leaders whose work bridges academia and practice to:

Define and explore existing and future urban challenges related to growth and social justice;

Identify knowledge and policy gaps in planning research and practice related these issues; and to

Inspire integrated and problem-driven agendas for research and practice based on lessons learned to shape socially just responses to future challenges of urban growth.

The symposium and lunch are free for registered attendees. The event is open to the public.
