THE FUTURE OF CITIES

Building on the success of ACE’s Navigating COVID-19 and their own Coming out of COVID series in 2020, Infrastructure Intelligence are back with a Live webinar series which will explore issues affecting our sector.

The Infrastructure Intelligence Live series of events continues on Friday 26 February 2021 with a webinar looking at the future of cities in a post-Covid world.

In just a few short months the Covid-19 pandemic dramatically changed city life. Millions of office workers quickly shifted to working from home, city centre footfall plummeted and sales in the retail and hospitality industries fell dramatically – putting millions of local service jobs at risk. The character of city life changed overnight and successive lockdowns have made recovery challenging.

The number of people using public transport has also fallen, causing financial problems for city transport authorities. The ease that many people have found working from home and continuing worries about the safety of public transport and busy city centres have prompted many commentators to question the future of cities in a post-Covid world.

So, what does the future hold for cities and the people living and working in them? And, crucially, what does this mean for a construction and infrastructure sector that plans and designs them? Will cities ever be the same again? Is the city as we have known it a thing of the past or will they return to something approaching normality?

Find out about the latest thinking on how cities will be planned, designed and lived in as we face up to a post-Covid world by attending this webinar, which is organised in association with our Events and Communications Strategic Partner, BECG.

This webinar will take place on Friday 26 February11am-12.30pm.
