Vision 2018

The vision of the Harvard Urban Forum is to create a student-run platform for conversation in urban planning. The works in this editorial will encompass a variety of forms ranging from research papers to anecdotes about growing up in a legacy city. Just as cities and the urban planning field change over time, so will this publication. We hope you enjoy Harvard Urban Forum’s first edition. We look forward to receiving your feedback and submissions.
