6th Annual Urban Innovation Symposium - Friday, January 29th, 2016
Chicago's leading planners--in one room.
UPPSA's annual Urban Innovation Symposium showcases planning knowledge from across the Chicago region. During a daytime session, professionals from around the region provide insight into cutting-edge ideas in physical planning, design, housing, and economic development. At the evening event, urban professionals deliver presentations in more casual format, and an informal atmosphere encourages attendees to get to know each other and network while enjoying food and drink. Free and open to the public.
6th Annual Urban Innovation Symposium
The Raw City
The Raw City, will explore the inner-workings of the urban environment, peeling back the layers to acknowledge the ways in which people and communities are the engine to social, economic, and environmental function and innovation. They'll be touching on issues including affordable housing development, equitable bike infrastructure, sustainability, historic preservation, the use of data in urban planning, and the role of artists in placemaking.
