Defining Calgary's Future

The 19th century was about empires. The 20th century was all about nation states. The 21st century will be defined by cities.
Urbanization is accelerating world-wide. So is wealth concentration. Soon, the overwhelming majority of wealth will be in the hands of a few super-cities, leaving mid-size cities to share the rest.
With this in mind, how does Calgary set itself on the path to being one of those super-cities – if not in size, then in wealth, education, infrastructure and an urban environment that invites in-migration of people and investment? How can Calgary be more future focused?
Please join The School of Public Policy and our panel of experts as we consider what thinking big means in Calgary. What is this city’s future, and where is the path to that future?
Speakers:
• Brian Conger, Community Planning Manager, ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd., Executive Fellow, The School of Public Policy
• Colin Jackson, Convener, Calgary on Purpose, and Senior Scholar, University of Calgary Graduate College
• Mary Moran, President and CEO, Calgary Economic Development
