Description

A conversation on resilience and adaptation with Ken Greenberg

Join new grad Melinda Yogendran and SofC's Interim Director Matti Siemiatycki as they speak with Ken Greenberg about adopting new practices for building better, more equitable cities. 

This Spring, Ken Greenberg was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from the University of Toronto. With convocations cancelled, he published his passionate convocation speech, illustrating a message of hope for new graduates to seize the baton and use this crisis to move us to a better place.

This moment of crisis has highlighted the failure to address the most marginalized populations, a total reliance on the digital world, and the importance in strengthening our social safety networks. In light of these revelations, we are also witnessing remarkable examples of community organizing, working together, and trying new things.
