Why Urban Laboratories?

May 10, 2010

The theme of this year’s conference, “Great Lakes Cities: Urban Laboratories,” was chosen to reflect members’ interest in demonstrating that the cities of the Rust Belt have become ground zero for rethinking what cities can be.  The vacant land of our cities has become room for new types of urban farms, the neighborhood associations venues for real advocacy, the building stock are places to experiment with creative reuse, and the small businesses a sea change in economic development.  In Great Lakes cities, people are committed to a new urban vision of equity and sustainability, and GLUE’s members want to share in the experiments of that new vision.
