City of the Future - August Session City of the Future - August Session

Since the last City of the Future, both Texas and the world have drastically changed. We have learned the true measure of strength in our communities—and that we each have a part to play in transforming them. People have endured great pain, and from that, lessons are being learned. As systems, institutions, supply chains, and even culture are being reassessed to better protect and deliver for people first, there are opportunities to heal and build. Now with the City of the Future virtual monthly series, we hope to create a platform for collaborative sharing of ideas and lessons learned so our cities and systems can be built for preparedness and equity.
