About the conference:

The Rising Urbanist Conference is a multi-disciplinary event organized around the landscape architect’s strategic and imaginative methods for collaborative problem solving. We are interested in highlighting better approaches to our city’s most pressing environmental problems and injustices by facilitating a series of conversations that are challenging yet productive. We imagine the potential for the urban forest as a key component and catalyst to drive urban design into the 22nd century, and to address the presence of socio-economic and health disparities, which touches every aspect of our work. This conference is a groundbreaking forum for the next generation of urbanist thinkers to organize around long-term planning strategies rather than disciplinary hierarchies.
