The UfM-UNESCO webinar scheduled on 15 July will reflect upon the marks the COVID-19 pandemic could possibly leave on Euro-Mediterranean cities that need to be taken into account in building a common vision for sustainable urban development in the area of action of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) in the coming decades.

The pandemic also challenges urbanists to rethink the architecture of density and reimagine cities that are walkable, have open green spaces, and recognize the power of local communities.

It seeks to reach out to public authorities in charge of policy-making and planning for sustainable urban development and affordable housing in UfM countries, universities and students, representatives of intergovernmental organizations and NGOs, international financial institutions and donors, and the public at large.

The discussions will take place online and will be livestreamed on the UfM website and on the UfM’s Facebook page.
