The Next Urban Giants: A Practical Guide to the Future of City Building


The following reference guide or “greenprint” was developed to document and highlight the key issues that emerged from the Next Urban Giants convening. The goal of this workshop was to bring together a group of 50 experts from a wide array of sectors, disciplines and localities to discuss how growing megapolitan regions can increase resilience and equity through urban greening. This multidisciplinary workshop was funded by a National Science Foundation Sustainable Urban Systems conference grant (#1929824) awarded to Washington State University in connection with NSF’s Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 19-032).
