Richard Florida on The New Urban Crisis

June 9, 2017, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Metropolitan Planning Council

In recent years, the young, educated and affluent have surged back into cities, reversing decades of suburban flight and urban decline. And yet, all is not well. In Richard Florida’s newest book, The New Urban Crisis, the urbanist, senior editor for The Atlantic and author demonstrates how the same forces that power the growth of the world’s superstar cities also generate their vexing challenges: gentrification, unaffordability, segregation and inequality. 

Join MPC in welcoming Florida to Chicago for a lively conversation about how we create more inclusive cities capable of ensuring growth and prosperity for all.
