About the Conference
The goals of the 2019 Hixon Center Conference are to share the latest science on the challenges facing cities in the 21st century; explore potential solutions toward more equitable and sustainable cities. We will delve into these ideas generated by three external guest speakers and two moderated panels of Yale faculty. The event will also create an opportunity to foster collaboration across Yale University to advance critical urban research.
