Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This breakfast roundtable will present perspectives from a group of academics from across the US on the topic of creating livable, healthy and sustainable communities. The development of such communities is becoming an important part of community development, urban design, policy planning and urban affairs. With the desire by urban scholars throughout N. America and Europe to move from communities that are often described as sterile and boring places to live, it is important to understand the factors that make communities livable. This roundtable will discuss what has gone wrong in many communities and will offer suggestions for making them more livable.
