Engaging in exercises of collective envisioning is of utmost importance to incite the conceptualization and experimentation of radical urban futures that can transform the socially, economically, and environmentally unsustainable processes dominating our current urban landscapes. With a specific focus on envisioning the future of New York City in 10 years, NYC 2033 aims to reflect on the necessary political, pedagogical, and activist practices to prioritize urban directions for the next decade. By bringing together a diverse range of voices, perspectives, and expertise, the conference seeks to foster meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas.
The various panel discussions will explore innovative approaches, challenge existing paradigms, and propose transformative directions. The ultimate goal is to inspire actionable strategies and initiatives that can shape a more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable urban future for New York City and beyond.
