The City in 2050: Creating Blueprints for Change initiates a multi-year dialogue around urban development strategies leading into the mid-21st century. The rising significance of urban development as a means toward achieving public policy goals presents new choices and trade-offs for all involved decision makers. Explore and help us define what land use professionals will need to consider while seeking to create communities that are economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.

With The City in 2050: Creating Blueprints for Change, we take the opportunity to create a dialogue that explores potential paths of innovation. The initiative is being presented as an exchange of ideas to prepare for and act upon the changes facing metropolitan areas over the next decades as the world becomes more urbanized.
