About the Conference

Wharton's first Future of Cities Conference centers on the theme of "Reviving our Cities" amid the health and economic crises caused by COVID-19. Through panels, fireside chats, and lightning lectures with leading industry and academic experts in real estate and transportation, we will explore how urban areas are coping and examine paths forward for post-COVID order in major American cities.

Supporting Our City

As our city, region, and nation face a public health crisis, many of the kids Boys and Girls Club serves also face an educational crisis. The shut down of public schools, after school programs, and youth development facilities due to COVID-19 makes the work of Boys and Girls Club even more vital to the kids. The Boys and Girls Club is currently serving lunches and feeding children at 5 of their locations as well as providing Virtual S.T.E.M., Literacy, and Club programming daily.

The Conference is free, but we ask you to join us in supporting the Boys and Girls Club by making a donation here:
