EDENS, along with Urban Land Institute, Economic Innovation Group, and The Atlantic’s CityLab, invites you to the launch of best-selling author, Richard Florida’s new book, “The New Urban Crisis: How Our Cities are Increasing Inequality, Deepening Segregation, and Failing the Middle Class—and What We Can Do About It.”
Join Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Urbanist and Author Richard Florida, EDENS’ CEO Jodie W. McLean, The Atlantic’s Ron Brownstein, the Economic Innovation Group’s Steve Glickman, ULI Senior Fellow and former mayor of Pittsburgh, Tom Murphy, and more for discussions on building inclusive prosperity in our cities.
America’s urban revival has turned into a new urban crisis. Our great creative communities have become increasingly unequal and unaffordable. We need a new pathway and playbook going forward.
Inclusive prosperity is a framework to move beyond our current urban divides, where city and community leaders, urbanists, neighborhood activists and businesses work together to create opportunities for all.
