Urban Innovation Symposium
Chicago's leading planners—in one room.
UPPSA's annual Urban Innovation Symposium showcases planning knowledge from across the Chicago region. During the daytime session, professionals from around the region provide insight into cutting-edge ideas through deep dive lectures and panelist discussions. At the evening event, urban professionals deliver discussions and presentations in a more casual environment. This informal atmosphere encourages attendees to get to know each other and network while enjoying food and drink. Free and open to the public.

The discussions will touch on Claiming Spaces: The Role of Public Art as Place-maker; The Language of Environmental Justice; Future of Co-ops; Zoning, Land-use, & Affordable Housing; Neighborhoods & Sustainable Design; and Transportation Equity.
