In the aftermath of the economic downturn, economic recovery and job incubation will originate in America’s cities, which present vibrant centers of ideas, talent, and innovation.
At this critical moment, The Atlantic will engage city leaders and urban influentials in important conversation on the challenges and opportunities facing America’s cities—infrastructure, transportation, mobility, energy, sustainable design, and telecommunications.
Held in Washington, D.C., this full-day forum will feature interviews, panel discussions, and keynote addresses from leading experts in urban infrastructure and sustainable development. The event will gather an audience of 200 inside-the-Beltway opinion leaders from Congress, federal agencies, non-profits, business, academia, think tanks, associations, and media.
CityLab is a celebration of urban life, bringing together mayors from around the world, along with policymakers and business leaders, artists and activists.
