Blog Release: Mega-Regional Pittsburgh

From GLUE:

You’re invited to GLUE’S FIRST-EVER, once monthly,

Sticky Cities Round Up

WHAT? The Great Lakes Urban Exchange wants your input on a mega-regional conversation. What’s good, bad, and ugly about our post-industrial cities? How can we make progress as collaborators rather than competitors? Join us for a 90 minute session occurring simultaneously in 15 cities across the “rustbelt.” See “What is GLUE?” for more information.

TOPIC I : WHAT’S YOUR LAUNDRY LIST? What is holding your city back right now? What issues must most urgently be addressed to help your city get healthy? In your wildest dreams, what could we all do TOGETHER to make change a reality?

WHEN? April 10th 7 PM EST (6 PM CST) – 8:30 EST

WHERE? PGH: THE UNION PROJECT, 801 N. Negley Avenue, 15206

*** Sticky Cities Round-Ups will begin PROMPTLY at 7 PM EST, 6 CST. Their success will rely on participants’ ability to stick to a regionally coordinated schedule. Chat with us at the tail end of the evening!
