Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, this event has been cancelled. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
The discussion builds on initial conversations emerging from the inaugural workshop of the Global Urban Network, coordinated by the School of Cities at the University of Toronto in October 2019, which brought together directors of urban institutes from 17 universities, across 5 continents.
The panel participants will each provide a brief summary of the unique approaches their respective institutes take in addressing both localised and global urban challenges. Each panelist will elaborate on how their work and the operational visions of their institute are embedded within the university-city-community nexus and discuss the existing and potential opportunities for new and deepened partnerships in city-building. The benefits and pitfalls of ‘scaling-up’ these models and approaches and working collectively on common themes and research agendas will form the basis of the wider discussion. The panel encourages participation of scholars from other urban institutes not originally represented at the workshop in Toronto.
