The current and future status of the livability of cities around the world continues to be one of the biggest challenges for city-makers -- and the District is no different. This first part of this event will frame and provoke 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. Lastly, the film will be followed up with a brief Q&A session with the panelists.
After attending this course, participants will be able to:
1. Provoke questions of livability and spatial equity;
2. Establish a dialogue about the future of the city from a range of perspectives;
3. Challenge the embedded assumptions of obsolete city-making; and
4. Describe how city-making principles that prioritize humans can be applied to DC.
