SPUR Film Screening: “Urbanized”

Film Screening: “Urbanized”

Event image

This event will take place in San Jose.

More than half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75 percent will call a city home by 2050. But while some cities are experiencing explosive growth, others are shrinking. The challenges of balancing housing, mobility, public space, civic engagement, economic development and environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. Yet much of the dialogue on these issues is disconnected from the public domain. Urbanized looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers. Join us after the movie to continue the discussion at one of downtown San Jose’s urban hot spots.

Co-hosted by San Jose Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio
