Bruce Katz, James Johnson-Piett

Rekindling our love for cities - hosted by Conrad Kickert

Our kick-off conversation focuses on the merits of cities. Why should we care about our cities - both during our current challenges and into the future? What do our cities do for us, and what can we do for our cities? Two national thought leaders Bruce Katz (Nowak Metro Finance Lab at Drexel University; New Localism) and James Johnson-Piett (Urbane Development) will discuss how we can prove and improve our cities as places of choice and justice.
