Forefront is an annual program led by the Urban Design Forum dedicated to cultivating emerging leaders in urban design, development and policy Each year, the Forum invites 20 individuals under the age of 40 to become Forefront Fellows.
Fellows meet monthly to investigate critical issues facing New York City, develop design projects and policy papers, and receive feedback from their peers and established leaders in the field.
In addition, Forefront Fellows enjoy two years of Forum membership, with benefits such as invitations to exclusive roundtables, tours and dinners in New York City; a monthly bulletin of Fellows’ news and updates; and unparalleled access to our global network of leading urbanists.
Design for Arrival explores how urban design, development and technology can strengthen historic and emerging immigrant communities in New York City. Forefront Fellows will explore key questions such as:
- What is the role of cities in attracting and protecting new immigrant communities?
- What innovative design solutions offer greater affordable housing for new immigrant families?
- How can the design of the built environment foster greater immigrant entrepreneurship?
- How can government agencies utilize technology to better serve immigrant populations?
- How can we improve transportation networks to better connect growing neighborhoods?
- How can we ensure equitable access to healthy parks, libraries, and other public spaces for immigrant communities?
