The last 12 months have been a time of great disruption for our cities While some places can operate as close to ‘normal’ as possible, the majority of cities continue to struggle with the devastating consequences of an unparalleled public health emergency. Loss of life. Industries shut down. Housing crisis.

It has forced us to pause, reflect, and consider what truly matters most for our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others. The same goes for our cities. How can we make our places more liveable? Where can we do things differently – and how can this help us manage the challenges of the world we live in?
