How will working from home change our cities?

We hosted an event on the future of working in cities

Event starts at 11.05-12.05 on 11 November 2021 at Online, via Zoom

Throughout history cities have brought people together to trade, learn and to have fun. However, the Covid-19 pandemic and technological advances could be changing this forever.

As the long-term impact of Covid-19 becomes clearer and the nature of work changes to adapt to it cities must change too. This will have implications for the economy, working and social life, infrastructure, planning and design.

At this event, we explored the potential long-term impact of working from home and what it could mean for how we run, plan and think about our cities.
