Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture and the Dwight Look College of Engineering are excited to be co-sponsoring the First Dialogo on the Border conference to take place this coming April 19-20 in Brownsville, Texas.
Dialogos (Spanish for “dialogues”) have been held around the United States to identify critical planning issues affecting Latino communities and Latino Planners (as an initiative of the Latinos and Planning Division of the American Planning Association). While our proposed Dialogo on the Border emerges from this effort, this dialogue is a multidisciplinary event.
Who should participate: planners, architects, researchers, community leaders, professors, political leaders, community and grassroots organizations, students, environmental leaders, public officials, technical experts, school districts, law enforcement personnel, funding and charity organizations, and in general ALL interested citizens that will work collaboratively to develop solutions that might improve living conditions in border areas.
What to expect: presentations by experts in the field, active discussions on theory and how it can be applied on real problems; best practice examples, hands-on workshops, local tours to key projects, and a broad exchange of ideas and initiatives.
Where: at the International Technology, Education and Commerce Center (ITEC) located at 301 Mexico Blvd. in Brownsville, Texas.
We are working on building a diverse and supportive national network of planning, community, and policy professionals to address the many issues affecting communities around the county
