Arup: COVID, economies and cities - adapting for a new normal (start-time: 10am)
The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the world we live in. Physical distancing measures and restrictions on people’s lives now affect over half the world’s population. Economic activity has fallen significantly and the shape and use of our cities has been transformed. As governments implement policies to limit the spread of the virus, the extent of both the epidemiological and economic impact is becoming more clear. Businesses, cities and individuals now need to find new ways to recover and adapt to the crisis as we shift into a more stable period of managing local outbreaks and ensuring economic recovery.
Join us for a live event to explore the latest views around the impacts of COVID-19 on economies, cities and businesses. We will explore the implications of the ongoing public policy response through a scenarios-based approach, a tracking of city indicators, and a sharing of global exemplars and best practice for how to adapt and thrive in the new normal.
