Spring 2014 Lecture Series: URBAN PLANNING, TODAY
A speaker series brought to you by Georgetown University Urban and Regional Planning Program

Spring 2014
Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies
Auditorium
640 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Directions & Getting Here

Welcome to the second half of this year's inaugural speaker series celebrating the creation of the Urban & Regional Planning program at Georgetown University. Following the fall's lectures, which explored the planned future of the National Capital Region, we now turn to exploring contemporary trends and challenges to the profession of urban planning.

The strategic importance of global urbanization is now well recognized by a broader community of stakeholders, including non-governmental organizations, the media, corporations and investors. Not only do cities stand out as concentrations of all forms of capital, but the process of urbanization itself may hold the greatest promise of achieving broader societal goals. In this spring series we ask, what is Urban Planning, Today?

Free and open to the public. RSVP is recommended.
