Which cities tomorrow, after COVID19, facing which challenges? With this question in mind, INTA opened a discussion with João Teixeira on Friday 26 March, from 4 to 6 pm (CET). After the global vaccination, the impact of the pandemic will not go away: no one will forget it or be ready to face the many challenges left by the crisis. Many of the measures taken during the pandemic will continue; this is an excellent opportunity to ensure a better future for all and to reshape our global economy.
Which cities tomorrow, after COVID19, facing which challenges?
With this question in mind, INTA opened a discussion with João Teixeira on Friday 26 March 2021.
After the global vaccination the pandemic impacts will not disappear: nobody will forget it or be ready to take on the several challenges left behind by the crisis. Several measures taken during the pandemic will go on; and this is a great opportunity to secure a better future for all and to reshape our global economy.
These multiple and challenges call for a New Welfare State centred on the citizen and nature, minimizing the impact and adapting to multi-risk conditions: natural hazards, pandemics and complex emergencies, in a multilateral global community, open to change, science, innovation, diversity and tolerance, and not going back to business as usual.
The City of tomorrow needs answers that last.
