How should urban centres recover from COVID-19? Join adjunct U of T professor, Kofi Hope (BA 2006 Innis), for a conversation about post-pandemic cities. Will inequities deepen? Or can we build back in a more diverse, just and sustainable way? Winner of the 2017 Jane Jacobs Prize, Hope is a Toronto Star writer and CEO of Monumental—an organization that works towards fair and equitable institutions. 

Hope will be interviewed by Professor Matti Siemiatycki, Interim Director, School of Cities, University of Toronto. Q&A to follow. Please submit your questions online at any time during the talk.

All U of T alumni are members of the UTAA and invited to learn more about its activities at the Virtual Annual General Meeting, which immediately follows the conversation with Kofi Hope. UTAA AGM materials follow below.
