My co-presenters were Associate Professor Dennis Ryan, Affiliate Professor Jill Sterrett, and Karen Wolf, Strategic Planning and Policy Division Manager for King County.
This presentation focused on the top trends that urban planners will face in the next 50 years. These top trends include food and water security, climate change, social equity, new urban design, demographics, collaborative education, transportation and health, regionalism, and social networking technology (Web 2.0).
I presented on the applications of social networking in urban planning (last 3 slides) to a panel of MUP alumni on January 31, 2010.
