The United States and the United Kingdom confront similar challenges whether managing political changes, addressing equity, advancing affordable housing or pursuing new economic strategies.  This session will bring together a conversation of planning leaders in four cities with similar issues and dynamics – 2 in the US and 2 in the UK – to talk about what’s working and what each country can learn from the other.  The interactive dialogue format will focus on issues such as resiliency, housing, regeneration, inclusive growth, municipal finance, and innovative public engagement.
