Detroit Events for City and Map Enthusiasts


Gehl Public x Design

WHEN: September 23 – 25

Together, we’ll dive into issues related to inclusion and equity in public life—the everyday social life of parks, plazas, sidewalks, and other spaces between buildings—and share approaches to planning, designing, and sustaining quality public spaces. Last year we developed an agenda for action. This year, we take it further—but we need your ideas.

CityLab 2018

WHEN: October 28 – 30

What can city leaders do to fuel innovation that improves quality of life for all? What can rising cities learn from the challenges faced by peers? At CityLab 2018, The Atlantic, The Aspen Institute and Bloomberg Philanthropies will convene the world’s city and community leaders to consider a new narrative worthy of the many global cities whose history may weigh heavy, but whose future holds the promise of a fresh page.
