Presentation: Youth Movement: Accelerating America’s Urban Renaissance [PDF]

Cities have been magnets for talented young adults in recent decades. Since 2010, well-educated millennials have accounted for half of the increase in population for neighborhoods close to city centers, according to City Observatory’s Joe Cortright. Some cities have succeeded in attracting this talent, while others, such as New York, have seen a slowdown in interest from America’s young and restless.

But in the wake of a global pandemic and urban unrest, will these trends of millennial migration continue? What must city leaders do to attract and retain talented young people in the future?

On July 28, the Manhattan Institute hosted a conversation with City Observatory’s Joe Cortright on young talent and the fate of America’s urban renaissance.
