When the UIC Department of Urban Planning and Policy was founded in 1973, Chicago was a very different city. What will the next 50 years bring, and how will Chicago confront the challenges of climate change, growing income inequality and health disparities? How will a multicultural, globally connected and polarized city with a rich legacy of city planning and architectural vernacular embrace future uncertainty? How will its population and built environment shape and be shaped by employment trends, migration patterns and environmental threats? Which neighborhoods will experience growth and which will decline?

The UIC Urban Forum has a history of deliberating important questions facing today’s cities. Join us for the 2024 event where leaders from the city’s planning, policy, nonprofit and arts communities will share bold visions for Chicago’s future. View more information at this link.
