The New Global City
September 20 - 22, 2023
From the climate crisis and the COVID pandemic to geopolitical instability, shifting global forces are reshaping the character and prospects of cities worldwide. In response, a new global city is emerging, one that increasingly influences policy dialogue, embodies democratic values, and places people at the center of urban life.
The in-person Pritzker Forum on Global Cities will examine how the conversation around cities has evolved in the past decade and what a shifting global landscape means for the new global city.
Panels will explore:
- How will geopolitical and global economic changes impact cities and their place in the world?
- What policy innovations can cities leverage to overcome the challenges of growing national-local disconnect?
- How is this shifting global landscape remaking the city? How can cities effect meaningful change—locally and globally?
After a digital hiatus, we are delighted to welcome you back to Chicago, September 20-22, 2023, for three days of networking, discussions, and deep dive workshops on The New Global City.
