Cities and regions that thrive in the 21st century will be those that embrace their future by planning for the changing needs of their citizens. As globalization and technological change accelerate, communities must transition from isolated to connected; disposable to sustainable; sprawling to compact; segregated to diverse.
These challenges require new ways of thinking about planning and infrastructure, governance, economic development and social equity. The New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region is witnessing exciting advances in these areas, as well as obstacles that threaten its competitiveness. This year’s Regional Assembly, Big Plans - Bold Innovations - Bright Future, will bring together local and international civic leaders to explore strategies for the tri-state area and examine how world cities are confronting vital public-policy questions.
