A number of IURC cities will share solutions and learn from one another on innovative, sustainable ecosystems & strategic sectors mostly as they relate to urban/neighborhood regeneration and social inclusion. The City Leader for the Cluster is the City of Baltimore (Baltimore Development Corporation).
The 1.5-hour session will include:
- a presentation from Colin Tarbert, President & CEO of the Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC), on Baltimore Together: A Platform for Inclusive Prosperity as a case study, strategic plan and living lab. This strategic plan identifies critically important goals to strengthen Baltimore’s economy and outlines strategies and tactics for reaching them. The presentation will focus on initiatives that could be developed and replicated by other cities facing similar challenges.
- a facilitated discussion with participants on the initiatives presented as well as the chance to share your city’s challenges, best practices, pilots and/or policy initiatives related to the thematic areas of the cluster and suggest possible areas of collaboration with other cities.
