Time: November 18, kl 12-14
Place: Microsoft Teams (link will be distributed Nov 17, the latest)
1.Presentation of metropolitan challenges as a result of Covid-19; now and in the future
Strategic planning experts from Brussels, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Oslo will share their experiences and discuss issues on Covid-19 and future planning of cities and urban areas.
Key challenges for urban development include regional cooperation, the loss of jobs and businesses, new patterns of travel and mobility, reviving our public spaces and inclusive housing. These challenges are seen against long-term EU policy goals in the Green Deal, and sustainable development in a more just and productive society.
