Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change

Climate change has assumed a principal role in framing deliberations on the future of urbanization. As climate change threatens to destabilize our cities, the conventions of urban practice and discourse are recalibrating to this new reality.

The session will reflect on how contemporary tools and new practices may afford us expanded capacities to work towards addressing these challenges. Drawing from the creative, research and practice experiences of the speakers, the panel will engage in a discussion on urbanism in the age of climate change.
