Mentors and innovators discuss Youth as Untapped Capital focusing on the incredible capacity of today’s youth as innovators for change. 7:30 PM, The City and Untapped Capital: Mayoral Panel - For some cities, Untapped Capital might be neighborhoods; for others, the arts. Governmental efficiency and green power offer reserves of Untapped Capital, while “downtown” revitalization and transit expansion may have proven less stable resources. How does a city’s history become Untapped Capital and how deeply is a city’s identity tied to its resilience? The mayors will cite specific examples of their utilization of Untapped Capital from their tenures while also considering the context of their cities within a larger national and international framework. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136511 The Cooper Union - The Great Hall true DD/MM/YYYY
