The Open City Symposium at CAPPA


Apr 09, 2021

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT





The integration of equity, in the process of planning and design, promotes benefits for the residents in underinvested communities by establishing policies and practices to deal with these issues. The difficulties faced by these communities as well as the reasons for these difficulties demand an honest dialog amongst policymakers, designers, planners, scholars, students and members of such communities.

The Open City Symposium at CAPPA aims to bring the issues to the table publicly and seeks optimal measures to achieve equity in the built environment.  The conference will build on previous successes by involving diverse experts and community members and leveraging CAPPA’s expertise in design, planning and policy.
