Webinar Summary:

The online event brought together top experts with worldwide insights on the impact of COVID19 on the real estate market, cities and people. As the COVID-19 is a new disease, the reactions of governments and health authorities across the world are different, and there is much uncertainty about it. In many countries, architects, urbanists and real estate professionals are confused, too, but they also strive for reasonable and innovative solutions that would bridge social distancing requirements with people’s wellbeing, health and overall happiness.

Will the pandemic change the world of work? How to plan and develop cities that are better places to live in these unprecedented times? A nature-based approach may be a solution as the COVID-19 made humans think more about nature again. Step by step, the so-called grown environment becomes complementary to the built environment and helps to create healthy urban ecosystems around the world. A city that feels and functions as a centuries-old forest sounds like quite a reasonable solution for agglomerations that suffer from insecurity from economic, social, climatic or biological causes, doesn’t it?
