Conversations on the City 2020 is a series of conversations about the enduring value of cities at a moment of uncertainty about the future of urban life. Each conversation is organized around a broad theme, but all will explore the abiding joy of living an urban life–why cities continue to thrive, what propels them forward, and why our need for the human connection that cities make possible will always prevail over whatever challenges that may arise.
