COVID-19 has transformed urban life, prompting wide-ranging predictions about what our life in cities will look like post-pandemic. In this virtual conversation, an interdisciplinary panel of Concordia experts from Geography, Urban Planning, Economics, and Political Science will consider how gradual deconfinement in large cities like Montreal will reshape the economy of cities and influence urban planning. What strategies should be put into action to ensure that transportation systems adapt and that urban mobility is guaranteed for everyone? How will citizens and commuters have to modify their behaviours? And what opportunities exist for further integrating sustainable practices into our reimagined cities?

Join the conversation as we consider these questions and more. Register for our Zoom webinar or watch live on our Facebook page.
