CityLab: Urban Solutions to Global Challenges

New York, NY / October 6 – 8, 2013

CityLab will bring together global city leaders—mayors and government officials, urban theorists, scholars, artists, and other key voices—to engage in a series of conversation about urban ideas and innovations that are shaping metro centers around the world.

 

The Atlantic, The Aspen Institute, and Bloomberg Philanthropies hosted the inaugural  "CityLab: Urban Solutions to Global Challenges," from October 6-8, 2013, in New York City. The event brought together 300 global city leaders—more than 30 mayors, plus urban theorists, city planners, scholars, architects, and artists—for a series of conversations about urban ideas that are shaping the world's metro centers.

The summit featured conversations on economic development; the environment and sustainability; cultural investment; big data; and the intersection of public safety, privacy, and technology; as well as smaller breakout sessions that explored topics like redevelopment, urban infrastructure, transportation, urban expansion, and the creation of the next tech city.
