Alumni College Summer Session: How Will Cities Survive?

All Day
Thursday Jul 28, 2016

Registration for Summer Session is now closed.  

Are cities, civilization’s greatest accomplishment, sustainable? Can the Twin Cities continue to grow and provide livable spaces and opportunities for all residents? These questions lie behind a host of economic, political and social questions that frame our daily lives. At a time when many large cities are experiencing demographic and economic decline the Twin Cities are described as miraculous and used as a model for planning and development programs elsewhere. Yet major issues over urban development, environmental and social justice confront the citizens and leaders of the Twin Cities each day. How we resolve these debates will shape the city for the next two generations.
