Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Transatlantic Workshop on Research on Policy Modeling: Europeans and Americans Meet in DC to Tackle 21st Century Challenges

From the Millennium Institute:

28th-29th January 2013
The New America Foundation
1899 L Street, N.W., Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036

The growing interconnectedness and speed of 21st century society is placing increasing pressure on government bodies to improve strategy development, policy design and decision making in and across complex, dynamic domains.

The effective use of ICT [information and communications technology] tools for governance and policy modeling is expected to alleviate this pressure by improving the evidence base for supporting better policy-making.

This Workshop aims to bring together researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to collect and share knowledge on modeling frameworks and best practices in the development of more advanced models for ICT-enabled policy formulation and evaluation.

Results from the workshop will contribute to the CROSSOVER Roadmap on Policy Modeling 2.0.

Maximum of 60 attendees including:
§ Policy makers & decision makers
§ Modelers & policy applications developers
§ Policy and data analysts
§ Interested Citizens
§ Journalists
