Urbanism Lunch Hour: Instant transformation leading to long-term change

July 3, 2020 @ 13:00 - 14:00 BST

We’re calling on Academicians to volunteer to speak at one of our upcoming series of our online Urbanism Lunch Hours. These events are open to all Academicians and Young Urbanist members.

Urbanism Lunch Hour: Instant transformation leading to long-term change

During this session we will explore how COVID has changed our cities and the necessary physical interventions can lead to long-term change.

The session will include contributions from two speakers. Phil Jones will give a talk on: ‘Which way now? Transport and streets at a time of great change’. While, Henriette Vamberg will talk about “Instant transformation leading to long term change”.
