Place-Based Conference: The Role of Universities in Sustainable, Just & Inclusive Cities
As one of the signature events for the Year of Engagement at Pitt, Newcastle University and the University of Pittsburgh are hosting a two-day virtual conference on the role universities play in building sustainable, just, and inclusive cities. The goal of the conference is to both define what the place-based agenda is and to think systematically through the advantages of an international network that is focused on post-industrial cities. Through various plenary sessions and concurrent panels, we invite you to explore research connections and moments of intersection in our current civic engagement, but also think through the value of global partnerships to inform future efforts in this domain.
