How can a catastrophe be a catalyst for positive change? The COVID 19 pandemic has disrupted normal life across the world, but many cities have used the situation to fast-track changes to improve urban life. Top urban planners from New York, Sydney and Singapore discuss changing workplaces and commuting, innovative planning initiatives, and re-inventing the use of city streets and the urban realm.
This webinar, chaired by Greg Clark, took place in the leadup to World Cities Day on 31 October 2020, with the theme Valuing our Cities & Communities.
Led by Greg Clark, the Liverpool City Mayor Joe Anderson and Glasgow City Leader Susan Aitken discuss the value of cities and their communities. City centres, public health, and the culture sector will be key factors in recovering from the COVID 19 pandemic.
