Designing for Healthier, Wealthier Cities SXSW 2018

How can modern cities ensure a financial safety net for citizens despite tightening budgets?

From child savings accounts to improving SNAP benefits to easing Gig Economy worker woes, we’ll dive into ways cities can advance citizens’ financial health and put in place testing plans to ensure their ideas deliver.
