In urban centers around the country, local governments are looking to attract emerging industries and the next generation of entrepreneurs.
This video shows a panel of urbanists presenting at the Aspen Ideas Festival. The panelists specialize in revitalizing cities and creating economically and culturally vibrant urban centers. They focus not on public policy, but rather finding ways to implement the locally produced ideas of people from the neighborhood with an intimate knowledge of the community as well as a vested in strengthening the local networks. They also highlight the arts, sense of place and the culture of a neighborhood as key components create attractive cities.
