“Compassion at the Core: Toward a More Human City”
“Compassion at the Core: Toward a More Human City” is one of five free session open to the public as part of the Congress for New Urbanism conference in Louisville from June 11-15.
What does it mean to be a compassionate city? Is it something that can be built into the ethos and the design of a community? Since taking office in 2010, Mayor Greg Fischer has made compassion one of the pillars of his administration, and Louisville has become a leader in the Compassionate City movement. Much of the inspiration of this work has derived from the spirit, principles and the humanity of Muhammad Ali, Louisville’s most renowned native son. His torch continues to burn even after his death through the efforts of his wife Lonnie Ali and the millions of people across the globe who continue to see him as a beacon of light and compassion. Hear from both Mrs. Ali and Mayor Fischer as they discuss the inspiration and the evolution of Louisville as a City of Compassion. Join us as well in recognizing the 2019 Legacy Projects that CNU sponsored with local Louisville neighborhood groups and volunteer design teams in four different neighborhoods this past March.
