Ghost towns no more: Rethinking Urban Resilience for the 21st century
As cities across the UK look to the future, there is a clear and pressing need to rethink how planning and policy decision makers can best support the communities they serve. While pandemic lockdown measures can feel like a distant memory, their impact continues to influence the way we think and operate, with ever increasing numbers of people reassessing where they live, work, shop, socialise, and how often they travel and get about.
This shift presents a unique opportunity to evolve the built environment towards a more sustainable and equitable future. Now more than ever, cities, particularly large ones, need to become more liveable. A whole of society, people-focused approach, incorporating green infrastructure, creative use of space and social equity, will be critical to a successful transition.
This event will explore the challenges faced by cities as they tackle these changes, the solutions and innovations currently being considered to support a smooth transition and the opportunities for businesses to be at the heart of a greener, healthier urban future.
