If you missed our recent event at Harvard Graduate School of Design, Opening the Gates of Opportunity: Realizing the Potential of Gateway Cities in Massachusetts, you can now watch the full event on YouTube.
Gateway Cities are midsize urban centers in Massachusetts facing stubborn social and economic challenges, but with many assets that have unrealized potential. Our half-day event brought together community leaders, public officials, policymakers, faculty and students (agenda) to exchange ideas and information about workable solutions for these cities and local economies. Through these discussions, we captured innovative, cross-sector, collaborative ideas and models that we hope will feed into the work that is being done by students and faculty in urban planning.
We want to thank all of the speakers, panelists, students, and sponsors who made our event such a success.
The video is available in three sections:
Part 1: Welcome & Keynote
Part 2: Goals, Challenges, and Who Are We Trying to Help?
Part 3: How Do We Get it Done? Tough Choices, Which Places, and Why?
