Fireside Chat: Creating Great Urban Places | August 19, 2021

Registration Link

The return to work has infused people back into our urban cores and generated opportunities to create great urban experiences. One thing that became clear over the COVID pandemic was how important natural settings are to our health and well being. Learn how to create great natural environments in our urban centers and how to make them active, safe, and inclusive for all.

Join us for our next LGA Fireside Chat where we will discuss these ideas and more with Bruce Race, Urban Planner/Architect and Director for Center Sustainability and Resilience at the University of Houston and Tara Green, Principal of Program Development for OJB Landscape Architecture.
