Urban Design Politics Symposium
If you've ever wondered about the politics behind things like urban planning, historic preservation or even water management, here's a chance to learn at Creating Greater Salt Lake—History, Landscape, Urban Design. This isn't simple politics, though, and Bernie Sanders supporters should take note. Andrew Needham of New York University will speak on "Beyond the Metropolis: Remapping American Urban History," examining how metropolitan infrastructure has formed new regions and created new inequalities and environmental changes within them. There will be three panel discussions including transportation and urban design, water and the unsustainable landscape, and architecture and power. Downtown City Library, Nancy Tessman Auditorium, 210 East 400 South, 801-245-7225, Friday, May 13, 9-4 p.m., free, registration requested, History.Utah.gov/2016Symposium

Gender Gap Film Screening
Donald Trump might want to see the documentary film CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, and soon. This special screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Robin Hauser Reynolds. The film explores tech jobs—which are growing three times faster than colleges are producing computer science graduates—and the reasons why more women and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science. It also explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Rowland Hall Lincoln Campus, Larimer Center, 843 South Lincoln St., Tuesday, May 17, 6:30 p.m. screening. Free and open to public, CodeDoc.co

Plant Sale Fundraiser
It's spring and planting is on everyone's mind. But not so much the future of Fairpark, although its first annual Plant Sale and Education Project could help change that while promoting environmental responsibility and sustainability. There will be more than 4,000 vegetable and herb plants in the queue for distribution to the community for home gardens. As a special incentive to get people to attend the May 14 event, free seeds for lettuce, carrots, zucchini and cucumbers will be offered. Leftover plants from the sale will be taken to the Get Into the River Festival from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Utah Fairpark Amphitheater. Northwest Community Center, 1255 Clark Ave., Saturday, May 14, 10 a.m., free, pre-orders taken, FairparkCommunity.org
