The global Pandemic has shaken our cities and they face major challenges to support citizens and services.
As part of the year-round LREF Insights programme, this webinar brings together representatives from Liverpool and Glasgow in the lead-up to World Cities Day on 31 October 2020. World Cities Day celebrates cities around the world and this year the theme is Valuing our Cities & Communities.
The global Pandemic has shaken our cities and they face major challenges to support citizens and services, and to plan and navigate a recovery with many changes in train in trade, technology, travel, work, consumption and health.
So what is the value of cities and the communities they host? What kind of world would we have without cities? How can we orgainise our cities to produce more value for people, planet, and prosperity? Can we use the pandemic as a catalyst for positive change?
