You are invited to join ULI, AIA, ASLA and APA members at a panel discussion and film showing about the current and future status of the livability of cities around the world. Creating livable cities continues to be a challenge for city-makers, including the District. The first part of this event will be a panel discussion about the specific livability challenges DC faces today, what the priority initiatives should be, and what is the city working towards now. The second part of the event is a public showing of the film “The Human Scale,” which poses similar questions to cities and city makers around the world. The trailer for the film can be found here: ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3q9ifNfd1Y) The film will be followed up with a brief Q & A session with the panelists.
