UFS Reflections Series webinar: Urban living post-COVID-19

August 27, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

UFS Reflections Series webinar: Urban living post-COVID-19

Within the next five years, 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Urban living comes with large-scale economic advantages and society benefits from economies of scale. But, COVID-19 is challenging urban living. We have introduced the term ‘social distancing’ and some policy analysts have even argued for the de-densification of cities. 

Join us for a discussion where our panellists will analyse this perceived conflict.

Prof Ivan Turok
Dr Geci Karuri-Sebina
Mr Teresh Govender
