The Future Leaders in Planning Program (FLIP) was held virtually this past year. The Virtual FLIP Summer Series highlighted topics related to the impacts of planning during COVID-19, water resource management, inequalities in urban planning, and urban street festivals for a four-week period in July and August.
Over four weeks, the Virtual FLIP Summer Series offered high school and college students one unique live-streamed session followed by an interactive activity led by regional planning experts from CMAP and partner agencies. The series continued the goals of FLIP: to grow the pipelines of planners, to provide a meaningful and inclusive civic leadership curriculum to young people, and to support CMAP’s core values across our seven-county region.
Live content was made available to participants through a conference link. Participants who attended all four sessions received a Future Leaders in Planning certificate.
The dates of commitment for 2021. All sessions were held from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST.
