About the Event
The **2019 Conscious Cities Festival** is a four-day learning environment aiming at exploring how science-informed design can create a healthier, more inclusive city.
The mission of the Festival is to facilitate dialogue among individuals, organizations, and institutions to spur collaborative and creative solutions for achieving just communities, using a multidisciplinary approach grounded in principles of **racial equity** and **social justice**.
Building on the Conscious Cities movement’s previous events, each day of the Festival will tackle pressing issues facing today and the future’s urban population, grouped into four themes: **Resilience, Families, Aging,** and **Mental Health**.
Designers, community planners and organizers, advocates and activists, behavioral scientists and representatives of New York’s City Hall and other city agencies will discuss how science and design can inform one another at a series of public talks, hosted by our venue partner **Pratt Institute**.
*A limited amount of free student tickets available.
The Centre for Conscious Design (CCD) is a think tank focused on using design to address urban issues facing society today and in the future. We see the continued urbanisation of the world population presenting both challenges and opportunities to building an environment that improves health, wellbeing, equity, and productivity.
