Livable Cities Conference

June 14 @ 8:00 am - June 16 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Conference Info

Join Parsons Corporation June 14-16 at Livable Cities Conference in New York!

Organizer Overview

The design of our neighborhoods and buildings is connected to health, wellbeing, happiness studies and the ‘economics’ of healthy cities. In its turn, crime and public safety affect design through practices such as defensible space. Infrastructural and eco-system resilience involves considering clean air, water supply, urban cooling and landscape infrastructure. Post-COVID-19 disruptions to work, leisure and commuting methods require the rethinking of business, architectural and infrastructural modes of operation.

LIVABLE CITIES – New York, is the first of two related events. Held in New York, June 2023 it will be followed by LIVABLE CITIES – London in June 2024. In both New York and London we will examine the issues above from various angles. We will examine how we live in cities, and how every issue we encounter morphs with considerations of others, whether housing, architecture, urban planning, health, IT, crime and safety, city management, economics or the environment.

For more than 75 years, our experts have designed and delivered the critical infrastructure that connects and protects communities around the world. Where New York needed a crossing, we delivered the new Goethals Bridge, designed with a 100-year life span in mind. When the Southern Nevada Water Authority needed to sustainably safeguard water access, we provided the program and construction management to make it happen.
