UrbanKind Takes Center Stage at p4 Pittsburgh

‚ÄčUrbanKind Institute played a main role in the City of Pittsburgh and Heinz Endowments'  p4 Conference (www.p4pittsburgh.org). The conference aimed to develop a model for urban growth that is "innovative, inclusive, and sustainable." Dr. Bey led several sessions and extended the conversations from UrbanKind's Friday Forum discussions held earlier this year to the conference participants. Dr. Bey and Dr. Beery also helped the conference facilitators prepare for the breakout discussion sessions. As always, UrbanKind will continue to advocate for a Pittsburgh that works for all of its residents. Our background guides for the discussion sessions are available on our Publications page.
