Tuesday, April 4, 2017

4:00pm - 5:30pm

Join Penn IUR, Perry World House, Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, and Next City for a launch of the documentary, “The Moment to Get Cities Right: Inside Habitat III, the Urbanization Summit of a Generation,” which was shot over the course of the four-day Habitat III conference in Quito.

The film tells a remarkable story of how urban leaders from around the globe are coming together to solve our planet’s most pressing problems. Co-produced by the Lincoln Institute and Next City with videography by Meerkat Media, it offers an inside look at a movement that is more important than ever before.

Following the film, Next City President, CEO & Publisher Tom Dallessio will lead a conversation about how best to implement all the follow-up to Habitat III, including the blueprint adopted at the summit, called the New Urban Agenda, as well as Sustainable Development Goals related to urbanization. Panelists include Genie Birch, Co-Director, Penn IUR; and Justin Sheid, US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) (invited). We will conclude the event with a reception.

Registration is required to attend this event.
