MAS Summit for NYC This Week
October 5th, 2011, 11:33 am
The MAS Summit for New York City is just days away, on October 13 and 14. This will be our largest-ever convening with more than 75 speakers joining MAS from around the country to discuss New York’s most pressing challenges, as well as innovative solutions to make our city even more livable. This is a tremendously important event for both MAS and for our city. If you haven’t done so already, register now, as this not-to-be-missed event is nearly sold out. New York City shares a rare distinction with many other world cities in consistently scoring low on international livability indices. One London-based pundit suggested his city—like ours—was perhaps more lovable than livable. New Yorkers continue to strive for livability, though, and as part of the MAS Summit for New York City, we will bring together leaders from other cities across the globe to consider how they are defining livability in their city, and what New York City can learn from these other places. In addition, we’ll be releasing of our annual MAS Survey on Livability in New York City and our report on the future of the Garment District, as well as exploring a myriad of urban topics, including: the role of design in constructing a global city; how to rebuild crumbling infrastructure; the impact of zoning on a livable city; how our city can be more resilient and sustainable; and the role of artists in re-envisioning neighborhoods. We look forward to seeing you at the Summit. Register now.
