The COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed an unprecedented number of effects. The quantitative effects on health, economy, travel, social interaction and almost any walk-of-life imaginable are massive. There is no doubt that this is a deep crisis, with profound effects. As we speak estimations and extrapolations of what this means for the future of cities and societies takes on new heights.
Join this Science Talk and learn how epidemic disruption alters Mobilities in Corona City.
This online free-of-charge Science Talks will be facilitated over youtube, and you’ll receive a link after sign-up:
FYI: The event will be recorded and live-streamed for use on our platforms.
City Life in Times of and after Corona
How will our cities change post pandemic? What can we do as citizens, urban planners, architects, designers and decision makers to ensure the right restart for our cities – and protect ourselves against future pandemics? How do we create solutions that ensure resilience, but do not compromise on livability and sustainability?
Through a new Nordic partnership between DOGA – Design and Architecture Norway, Danish Design Centre, BLOXHUB, Gehl Architects, Urban Agenda and Institute of Futures Studies, we will dive into the dilemmas of pandemic-proof cities when it comes to climate, behavior, design and livability and help generate the best solutions for restarting the good life in our cities.
