Shaping Cities for a Smarter Future
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the mobility patterns for over a billion people around the globe. Governments the world over have focused on managing continuity and implementing programmes to ensure recovery. However, despite the modelling and predictions of what the future may hold, uncertainty abounds. We know the crisis will end, but what will remain of the changes that have been enacted? Will recent initiatives aimed at making urban mobility safer, more sustainable and more accessible remain in place over the long term? Or will they become impractical and inefficient should large sections of the population return to previous mobility habits?
The last eForum of Season 4 will focus on what comes next when we look at “Shaping Cities for a Smarter Future” in the Americas.
