Fishman, Kelbaugh, Thomas speak at Congress for New Urbanism

The 24th annual Congress for the New Urbanism in Detroit will bring together over 1,500 individuals from around the world for four days of education, collaboration, discussion, and debate on the policies, designs, and emerging approaches that create great places. Entitled “The Transforming City,” the conference is held in Detroit June 8-11, 2016. Dean Robert Fishman, Professor Doug Kelbaugh and Professor June Manning Thomas will collaborate on a panel, “Detroit’s History.”  

In addition to the combined panel speaking opportunity, Kelbaugh will discuss Ann Arbor in “Midwest’s Best Small City,” speak at a forum, “Climate Change,” and participate in two member-led sessions, “Toward a ‘New Athens Charter’ for Habitat III and Beyond,” and “Trans-National Urbanism: The Practice.”   Fishman, Kelbaugh and Thomas are authors of more than a dozen books on topics including urbanism, city planning and Detroit.
