What future for cities after Covid-19?

31 March 2021

This city dialogue will contribute to the debate on the future of cities post-Covid-19. In particular, we will will look at some recent evidence of how the virus spread in cities and discuss how – rather than simply density – high contagion is strongly correlated with poor planning decisions, overcrowding and connectivity.

The Geography of COVID-19 can thus be mapped to determine drivers that led to the spreading of the virus in cities, and we will look at some local policy responses that were brought forward to stop it.

What is the future of cities? Cities are learning from the crisis to develop new policies and solutions. Join us to hear specific examples in the areas of housing, moblity and public space in Brussels and Riga (tbc).
