One of the central goals of the Urban Waterways project has been to provide means for the collaborators in our network to share their concerns, practices, and accomplishments with communities facing similar challenges. On March 28, 2015, the museum will provide a space for our collaborators as they gather for the Urban Waterways Symposium.
Panelists from Baltimore, Chicago, D.C., Hawaii, Los Angeles, Louisville, and Turkey Creek will gather to share their experiences, best practices, and next steps regarding such issues as Education & Practice, Environmentalism & Recreation, Grassroots Leadership, Collaboration, Waterfront Development, and Gentrification & New Urbanism.
The symposium will help to further the project’s long-standing goals of creating a cross-disciplinary dialogue among scholars, government officials, activists, and scientists, eliciting first-hand information from residents of local communities, and engaging all who are interested with on-going activities that will enable their participation in reclamation, restoration, and appropriate redevelopment of their urban waterways and their communities.
