Last week in partnership with NextCity, 900 AM WURD and AL DÍA News we launched City Sessions, a series of conversations with Philadelphians and national experts about the future of Philadelphia. Now is the time for us to think about how we want to continue growing and strengthening our city.
We’ve had seven straight years of population growth, fueled by baby boomers moving in from the suburbs, immigrants and college-educated millennials, a mayor in the last year of his term and a booming Center City. To continue moving forward, we need to engage all facets of our community in these important discussions. Not many groups can do that alone. It therefore requires most groups to partner with others that they may be unaccustomed to working with. It is these unlikely partnerships that will cause the collisions between young and old, new and established, and upper- and lower-income individuals that will move Philadelphia forward.
