Event description

Description

The Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation invites you to the inaugural Drexel Dialogues, a free and open event with a timely focus: Urban Innovation in the Age of Trump. We’ll be joined by guests sharing innovations here and abroad which confront current urban challenges and show the way for an equitable and inclusive future.

The program will include:

  • Bruce Katz, Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, and Jeremy Nowak, Lindy Institute Distinguished Fellow, who will discuss their forthcoming book, The New Localism, focused on how cities can innovate and lead in the wake of the federal government and states abdicating responsibility
  • Shannon Marquez, Vice Provost for International Development at Drexel and Clinical Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health at Drexel, specializing in sustainable solutions to public health crises; Roberto Moris, Professor of Architecture at Catolica University in Santiago, Chile with a focus on disaster planning; and Alan Greenberger, Lindy Institute Distinguished Fellow and Chair of Drexel’s Department of Architecture, Design & Urbanism, with deep experience in large scale planning and economic development, discussing global urbanism and innovations Philadelphia can bring home from the rest of the world.

  • The debut of the local Urban Innovation Fellows, three Philadelphia-based emerging leaders who will share their plans for impact in their communities developed at the Urban Innovation Summit's Fellowship Forums.

Drexel Dialogues will be held at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and is produced in partnership with Drexel's Office of International Programs, one of the closing events of Global Philly 2017. A reception celebrating the completion of the Summit and the exciting work to come will follow the program.
