PLACES + SPACES, the ULI Poland’s popular event for people passionate about the evolution of cities and their impact on human well-being is back.
However, for now, we would like to invite you to a "light", virtual version of the event. We've adjusted the concept and made it a ONE-PERSON SHOW, 1-hour event including presentation, interview, and Q&A.
The first event in the new version will take place on 15 December 2020 at 3 pm CET / 9 am ET.
The title of the event is:
CREATING COMMUNITIES OF OPPORTUNITY:
BUILDING THE COMMON GOOD
The event will feature JONATHAN F.P. ROSE, President of Rose Companies LLC, author of “The Well-Tempered City: What Modern Science, Ancient Civilizations and Human Nature Teach Us About the Future of Urban Life”, urbanist and affordable housing developer, whose business, public policy, writing and not-for-profit work focuses on creating more environmentally, socially and economically resilient cities.
Why the role of impact investing is growing? What is a well-tempered city? What is a Community of Opportunity? How to rebuild cities into more affordable and sustainable social systems focused on connectivity?
Jonathan's company recently closed on a $525 million impact acquisition fund with investors focused on climate change, poverty and income inequality, and COVID health concerns.
His work is guided by a deep commitment to creating positive social impact and applying the transformative power of well-designed thoughtfully programmed places to restore the balance between humans and nature. While building wellbeing through Communities of Opportunity, he also advocates that neighborhoods be enriched with parks and nature, mass transit, jobs, healthful food and places of contemplation.
The host of the event who will interview Jonathan will be MARCIN KLAMMER, Director of Development at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and a member of the ULI Poland Executive Committee.
Thank you to our Partners!
