CityLab 2015: Urban Solutions to Global Challenges

*This event is by invitation only.

Presented by the Aspen Institute, The Atlantic, and Bloomberg Philanthropies, the third annual CityLab: Global Solutions to Urban Challenges will venture overseas to London, England to bring together over 300 global city leaders — mayors, plus urban theorists, city planners, scholars, architects, and artists — for a series of conversations about urban ideas that are shaping the world’s metro centers.

The summit will further develop conversations started at the first two summits on equity and affordable housing; economic development; the environment and sustainability; cultural investment; big data; and the intersection of public safety, privacy, and technology; as well as smaller breakout sessions exploring topics like redevelopment, urban infrastructure, transportation, urban expansion, and the creation of the next tech city.

Select sessions from 2014 CityLab in Los Angeles, California
