Urban Transformation Forum: Mayors Changing Cities

Co-sponsored by the US Conference of Mayors and the David Bohnett Foundation

6:00pm - 8:30pm EDT
April 18, 2018
6:00pm - 8:30pm
Sheen Center, 18 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012

Program: 6:00-7:30pm

Reception: 7:30-8:30pm*

In the face of uncertain and vacillating support from the federal government, local governments are uniquely positioned to find innovative solutions to today’s toughest problems. A growing number of mayors are stepping up and driving creative and dynamic, urban transformation across the United States.

Join NYU Wagner, the US Conference of Mayors, and the David Bohnett Foundation for a lively and timely discussion with a panel of leading mayors. They will discuss how they’re changing their respective cities to meet today’s unique challenges—bringing forth big, bold, and inventive ideas that tackle issues such as immigration, the opioid crisis, gun violence, healthcare access, and infrastructure challenges. The moderated discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience and an evening reception.

*The reception will be held at NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10012
