The (Re)Connecting Communities Conference will explore and address the challenges faced by communities in terms of social, economic, and environmental connectivity. It brings together design and construction professionals to discuss and share innovative strategies, best practices, and solutions for reconnecting communities.

Learn from experts in the field and exchange ideas on various topics related to community development, urban planning, transportation, infrastructure, public spaces, and social equity. It aims to foster dialogue and collaboration among participants to identify ways to enhance connectivity within and between communities, promote sustainable development, and improve the quality of life for residents.

Join us as we discuss innovative strategies and best practices for achieving these objectives and gain insights from Vishaan Chakrabarti, and other industry professionals on fostering collaboration and creating thriving communities. 

Be part of the conversation and contribute to the future of inclusive urban design.
