Cities are fascinating, they’re complex, and they’re changing. With a whopping 10B people projected to walk this planet by 2050, urban planners are being called on to find innovative solutions that can prepare our cities’ infrastructure for what’s to come. It’s going to take some creative minds to solve these issues, and a whole lot of collaboration. Duke University’s Munici-PALS event will focus on the power of partnerships around challenges facing the built environment.
