Since its inception in 2016, Urbanism Summit has functioned as a multidisciplinary platform bringing together professionals, city governments, community stakeholders and innovators tackling inefficiencies in urbanization as it applies to the future of cities, their makers and dwellers. Urbanism Summit emerged in response to the necessity to accelerate the pace of innovation in building people-centered cities and communities. By focusing on action-based discussions we aim to help provide strategies for shaping the future of urbanization. Topics covering transportation, urban planning/design, development, construction, architecture, policy making, wellness, climate/environment, smart cities, entrepreneurship, arts/culture, and more – all with people in mind.
The Urbanism Summit will continue to foster an ethos of collaboration through knowledge share and professional connections. We will present a carefully curated roster of speakers, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and more.

Silos and fragmentation in professional urbanism is exclusionary, costing us a lot of money, and depleting our natural resources. We need to fix this as we practice urbanization.
