Who should be involved in city making and how? This is one of the questions at the centre of NSW Government deliberations as it seeks to reform the NSW planning system. The question is an important one for architects and planners and also raises issues about the right to the city. This panel discussion will localise issues raised in the traveling exhibition ‘People Building Better Cities: Participation and Inclusive Urbanization’, and seek audience views. Panelists include academics, urban practitioners, citizens, and developers. The evening will begin with a short presentation by Anna Rubbo (CSUD, Earth Institute, Columbia University) about the origins and purpose of the People Building Better Cities exhibition.
