Virtual Events

Conversations and convenings for the digital age

Placemaking on the web? In spring 2020, COVID-19 inspired the MPC team to move our well-known events online. What we lost in face-to-face intimacy, we’ve gained in our ability to gather great minds from across the world, free from geographic limitations. 

Our virtual events deliver conversations vital to our time, from the economic cost of suburban sprawl, to the value of anti-racism work among development professionals, to the potential of stormwater credit trading as a tool to reduce urban flooding. 

Join us! Online we’re building a wider community, together.
