After saving lives and tiding through the pandemic,an important question facing development authority is what does a city look like in the post COVID-19 era? All of these COVID-19 trends are reinforcing the central place of digital connectivity, and cyber security, and the functions of residential areas where people live and work. They also underline the ways in which cities need to reimagine their overall vision and design.
 
Topics 
Discussion will touch on
  • Can we expect to see new urban design standards that combine crisis response with long-term benefits for society and the environment?
  • How fast will cities evolve after crises?
  • If the city planners, business leaders and civic entrepreneurs make the right decisions now, can many cities bounce back better than before?
  • How much of importance will be relayed on the principles of resilience, sustainability and regenerative economics?
  • Will Covid accelerate some of the sustainability initiatives and measures?

"It was an engaging and insightful session, gave a good perspective on the current state of not only real estate but also consumer sentiments. It was quite user friendly and I encourage more of e-meeting sessions.
