Great Cities of India – A Dialogues Seminar
December 3, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Between 2000 and 2014, India added nearly 127 million new residents to its towns and cities, and over the next 15 years its urban population is projected to grow by 177 million. India faces numerous challenges as a result of these massive levels of urbanization. Meenu Tewari, associate professor in the UNC department of city and regional planning, will investigate this rapid process of transformation and will use great cities such as Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai and Kolkata as her case studies. Russ Smith, associate professor of geography at Winston-Salem State University, will highlight Jaipur and New Delhi as he discusses the recently announced Smart Cities Mission and its attempt to improve daily life in India’s cities.
Co-sponsored by the General Alumni Association. More information here.
Pre-registration required: The tuition is $65 or register for all 3 Dialogue seminars for $150.00. A meal will not be offered with this seminar.
