This panel will address the impacts that Millennials are having on U.S. cities. The Millennial generation (born 1981 to 1997) is typically viewed as networked, flexibly employed, and centered in urban downtowns near lively cafes and abundant public transit. Yet, Millennials also are highly diverse and face pressing challenges of housing affordability and socioeconomic mobility. Panelists will discuss current demographic, housing, economic, and transportation trends related to the Millennial generation and their implications for urban planning and policymaking.
