September 23, 2020 · 4:30 pm-6:00 pm · Webinar

Princeton Mellon Initiative

The pandemic has led to numerous disruptions and re-organizations of public space. Many have cheered temporary interventions into the urban landscape, including sidewalk cafes, slow streets, and other “pop-ups.” But the question of who benefits remains. This conversation will focus on changes both familiar and overlooked, and investigate how modifications in the way urban space is planned and organized have affected different groups in distinct ways.

Panelists will address challenges for city administrations and community organizations and how a range of actors could collaborate to create more equitable and inclusive urban spaces.
