The Future of Cities and Urban Planning

October 4, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, work-from-anywhere is here to stay. This doesn’t mean the end of the office, but rather, a new way of working closer to home—with more fluid organizations to match.

Outmigration from major cities into more rural areas—and a new era of accessibility of goods and services through technology—are changing real estate as we know it. This, in turn, means rethinking who and what cities are for and what they should look like in the future.

Join us for our webcast, The Future of Cities and Urban Planning. With more than a decade of writing and research on globalization, urbanism, innovation, and adaptability, urbanist and futurist speaker Greg Lindsay will address the impact of recent trends on the future of cities.

This session will cover topics including:

  • COVID-19 trends and their effect on city planning
  • Migration shifts and the resulting impact on cities and rural areas
  • Recent and potential developments affecting the built world
  • Suggestions for how organizations can adapt and plan for change moving forward

Don’t forget to check out the other webcasts in our four-part virtual 2022 Building Opportunity Conference.
