Description

This lecture series explores how we can re-imagine our post-pandemic cities to be more inclusive, green and liveable.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and magnified issues of urban inequality and environmental justice. Quarantine measures and the shut down of city centres have highlighted the extent to which urban land is dominated by road and car parking infrastructure. In many places, air quality has improved, nature has become more prominent and neighbours are starting to speak for the first time. This online lecture series organised by the Planning Society at Queen's University Belfast, will explore, through comparative practice, how planning can reimagine our cities to enhance well-being through creating more vibrant, sustainable and biodiverse places.
