July 22, 2020 – Cities and metropolitan areas around the world face immense challenges today. In a new posthumous book, renowned urban planner Hank Dittmar makes the case for individual initiatives and interventions rather than grand plans, which he contends are often the problem. The lessons in the book come directly from Hank’s experiences throughout the course of his storied career—as transportation planner, airport executive, and visionary leader and advocate—and how those lessons can, and should, be replicated to create places where people can flourish. This webinar featured Hank’s longtime friends and collaborators, Don Chen (Surdna Foundation) and Shelley Poticha (Natural Resources Defense Council) to discuss Hank’s legacy and the importance of engaging communities as cities and states realign their goals and programs post-COVID and beyond.
