How did we get here? What are the steps going forward for urban governance? How can the business sector can getter better involved? What can we learn as citizens from this experience and hence do better?
All these difficult and important questions will be our focus for the conversation we will have on Wednesday together with Gratian Mihailescu, Colin Fernando Alvarez Whitfield and Alex Glod.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many structural problems regarding the design of our cities, our relationship with the environment, our health care and educational systems, the involvement of the private sector, as well as our participation as citizens in the future of our cities.

This conversation will be the first of many more debates with experts and industry insiders where we will do our best to look at what are our best options moving forward, how we can take advantage of these changing times and how we can empower different stakeholders in the process.

Join us live on Wednesday, 1st of April at 11:00 AM GMT +2. We are serious on April Fools about our future because we don’t want to be no fools and neither should you.
