Connecting London nationally and internationally
Cities the world over have been at a standstill in response to COVID-19. The long term impact of the pandemic remains unclear, however globally, we are united in this uncertainty.
Never before have we needed new ways of addressing urban issues: new forms of civic leadership; citizen-centred but technology enabled; new places that work for all; greener and heathier ways of living; new technologies and new sources of jobs; and most importantly, greater equality and access to resources.
Future-proofing our cities requires a nuanced conversation. How do we create flexible and resilient cities that can respond to any future crises and constantly changing behaviours? How do we unify our efforts in tackling climate change? How can we rebuild society to ensure those marginalised don’t continue to suffer?
We must harness this moment of greater digital connectivity for a meaningful exchange, sharing experiences that will help all of our cities navigate the uncertainty and make informed and inspired decisions that serve their citizens.
NLA’s programme of city dialogues, or low-carbon conferencing, facilitates this discussion between London and other cities, nationally and internationally.
