insight2050 Academy focused on affordable housing | Begins September 27, 2019

The Fall 2019 insight2050 Academy will focus on affordable housing over five sessions – including attendance at MORPC’s annual Summit on Sustainability on October 11.

The academy kicks off on Friday, September 27, at 9 a.m. and continues each Friday morning through October 25. It is aimed at planning and design professionals will culminate with a workshop allowing them to put into practice what they’ve learned in the prior sessions. The cost and application information will be announced in late August.

The first sessions will feature an overview of the insight2050 data and scenarios by MORPC staff, along background information on the need for new housing – especially a range of affordable and workforce housing – as Central Ohio’s populations grows. On October 11, academy registrants will attend a Summit on Sustainability breakout session on creating long-lasting communities that not only have healthy ecosystems, but healthy economies and inclusive social opportunities as well. Academy registration also includes the full day of Summit events.

The final academy sessions will engage the planning and design community by further raising their awareness, offering insights into the causes, and challenging them to contribute to developing new concepts and arguments for more inclusive and affordable housing for all. In addition to the workshop on October 25, the final session will recognize academy graduates with certificates of completion.
