Governing Cities in the 21st Century

by School of Cities at University of Toronto


May 28, 2019 8:30 AM


2:30 pm


Bram and Bluma Appel Salon, Toronto Reference Library


What should governance look like in the 21st century? Can we leverage national, provincial and municipal relationships to advance urban governance? How do we scale up local responses to reach collective goals?

At the School of Cities spring symposium, Governing Cities in the 21st Century, these crucial questions will be discussed with experts, including a lightning talk by Nasma Ahmed, Director, Digital Justice Lab; a keynote by Michelynn Laflèche, Vice President, United Way Greater Toronto; and a fireside chat with Bill Peduto, Mayor of Pittsburgh and Richard Florida, University Professor, School of Cities and Rotman School of Management.

Join urban thought leaders, policy makers, planners, community advocates and business leaders as we exchange ideas on ways to meet the challenges of governing cities in the midst of change.
