Livable Cities

Join Penn IUR for a virtual discussion featuring experts from across the University to celebrate and expand upon the new audible book by Penn IUR Faculty Fellow Mark Alan Hughes, Livable Cities. Through ten chapters, Livable Cities explores why we seek out cities and how they create the conditions that allow us to meet our fundamental needs as individuals and as a human community. The book also examines some of the most pressing issues cities face today, including racial inequality, pandemics, and climate change.

The event will feature an introduction by Penn IUR Co-Director Eugenie Birch and book author Mark Alan Hughes, Professor of Practice, Department of City and Regional Planning, Weitzman School of Design and Faculty Director, Kleinman Center for Energy Policy. Following the introduction, each chapter will be briefly discussed by a pair of University of Pennsylvania faculty members.
