In mid-April, the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes and its local partners, the Museum of Science in Boston, the Center for Smart Cities and Regions at Arizona State University, and the University of Maryland, convened meetings to design the local sessions for the US debates.
At these meetings, they heard from local stakeholders including regional transportation planners, heads of emergency medical organizations, and leaders from disability rights organizations. The meetings provided valuable insights into key issues of relevance to stakeholders.
CSPO and its partners are now working on designing the local sessions based on feedback from the meetings. The forums in Boston, Washington DC, and Phoenix will be held in May.
