About the event:
Our special guest, Carolyn Steel, will kick off the evening with a short talk sharing her perspective on 'resilient cities and empowered citizens.' This will be followed by a group of students talking to Carolyn about their projects, outlining how their ideas respond to the challenges they've explored in different urban contexts. Carolyn and the students will then reflect on some areas of interest at which point the audience will also be invited to join the conversation.
