Cities are rapidly undergoing monumental shifts thanks to a range of factors, from the sharing economy to unsustainable climbs in the cost of living. These changes are having a lasting impact on the social meanings of places, and many of the spaces that used to be familiar no longer evoke the same feelings. With everything around us evolving so quickly, what does it take to create a new sense of belonging? Join us for a philosophical conversation about what it means to build community in our new urban environment.
