Kinder Institute Forum: Bruce Katz

Thursday, December 6, 2018, 3:00 AM

The New Localism Power is shifting in the world: downward from national governments and states to cities and metropolitan communities, where policy is less partisan and more pragmatic. This new locus of power — this new localism — is emerging by necessity to solve the grand challenges characteristic of modern societies: economic competitiveness, social inclusion and opportunity; a renewed public life; the challenge of diversity; and the imperative of environmental sustainability. With a focus on Houston, Bruce Katz, cofounder of New Localism Advisors, will share how the new localism can drive policy and create solutions through innovation, public-private partnerships and inclusion. About Bruce Katz Bruce Katz is the co-founder of New Localism Advisors and was the Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, where he focused on the challenges and opportunities of global urbanization. He was vice president and codirector of the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, which he founded in 1996. He coauthored The Metropolitan Revolution (Brookings, 2013) and The New Localism (Brookings, 2018). Please visit mfah.org/visit/parking for parking and other transportation options.
