Webinar Summary:

The first webinar held within the ULI Poland Virtual Conference, “The City of a Future,” brings together top real estate players and experts with worldwide insights on the impact of COVID-19 on the climate, capital, cities, and people.

Has the vision of the city changed in view of the pandemic? Is dealing with climate change a luxury now? How will we define the smart city? Can resilient cities answer better to the pandemic crisis? Is it the end of the era of megacities? How should we reinvent urban transit? You can find answers to the above questions in the webinar.

All panelists agree that the pandemic showed the vulnerabilities of cities, pointing out the need to become more adaptive and humane. Experts highlight the importance of social interaction as well as the connection with nature. Isolation and the health crisis should also lead to less density in workplaces and more outdoor areas to mingle.
