About the Conference

​As vaccinations are being administered and plans are being drafted to reopen our cities, Wharton’s second annual Future of Cities Conference centers on the theme of “Urbanization Implications” of the pandemic. Through panels with leading industry and academic experts, we will explore what cities need in order to be revived and how cities can transform now that demands of the past are no longer the same. With an increasingly mobile workforce, a worsening climate crisis, and a need for additional inclusivity, how can we reimagine everything from real estate to transportation?
