Energized. Inspired. Connected. These are some of the words you offered us when we first announced that Designing Cities would move to a virtual format, and asked how you hope to feel after a great conference or meeting. But how often do these words describe the dozens of hours of webinars and virtual conferences you’ve likely sat through since March?
After months of planning, we are excited to open registration for Designing Cities 2020, which is focused on creating opportunities for close peer-to-peer connection even as we remain physically distant. As we reflect on a heartbreaking and tumultuous year, we’ll highlight how agencies have navigated a charged U.S. election season and multiple intersecting crises including COVID-19, racial injustice, economic inequality, and climate change-driven natural disasters.
