Cities around the world are in the midst of massive population growth and urbanization. That’s why it’s so important to create smarter, greener and more inclusive cities. But with the promise of healthier infrastructures comes many pressing challenges for urban planners everywhere. In his talk, Professor Matti Siemiatycki discusses climate change, integrating new technologies into design, the accessibility of infrastructure, and issues of inequality. He also explores how planners can turn these challenges into communities for the 21st century.
Prof. Siemiatyck's presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted in cities around the world. U of T Where You Are brings the University right into your community, keeping you informed, inspired and connected.
