Jennifer Keesmaat and Mitchell Silver are not your average bureaucrats. Toronto’s Chief Planner since 2012, Keesmaat has become one of the city’s 10 most powerful people, according to Toronto Life, and one of Canada’s leading advocates for walkable, sustainable and liveable cities. As the Commissioner of Parks and Recreation for New York City, Silver has been called “a visionary” for his commitment to fairness in city planning. In this wide-ranging dialogue, two of North America’s leading urban thinkers join forces to discuss the future of cities and their tireless efforts to build vibrant, inclusive communities for the 21st century.
