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.

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.
