Urban Thinkers
The College of Architecture and the Joslyn Institute for Sustainable Communities (JISC) will host a two day forum event entitled “Urban Thinkers Campus” on November 16 & 17 as part of UN–HABITAT’s World Urban Campaign initiative “The City We Need.” The event will be broadcast live to the Sheldon Art Museum from Omaha, Neb.  Nov. 16th’s broadcast will be at 9:30 am and Nov. 17th’s broadcast time will be at 1:45pm with each lasting an estimated two hours.

The JISC proposal was one of 30 selected worldwide, and one of only two selected from the United States. This will be a two-day event forum with a number of focus groups exploring various aspects of the overall prospectus.

Through web-based conferencing with our partners in Alaska, Colombia, Guangzhou and elsewhere, organizers will connect their proceedings to urban thinkers, researchers and other participants in synthesizing recommendations and insights for the overall UN Habitat agenda, to be held in Quito, Ecuador, Oct. 17-20, 2016.

Please join us for these exciting forum broadcasts.
