The IHBC writes:

We can’t yet know how the current pandemic will re-shape urban areas, their surrounding communities, or supporting economics and infrastructure. But we can reflect on our recent approaches, and use these to speculate on – and shape – the most effective and sustainable responses.

The IHBC’s 2020 Virtual School brings together leading authorities and players from across the globe to address how our places should be managed and supported during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers and delegates will establish and confront the diverse challenges by looking ahead to inspire and explore how we can secure sustainable places in a new collective of local communities tied together by a global crisis.

Join us to reflect first on where we were, so we can speculate on where we might be heading.

So go online, on 19 June, as the IHBC’s 2020 Virtual School explores the topic of ‘OLD TOWNS | NEW FUTURES’, through both reflections on where we are, and speculations on where we might be heading.
