Online series of events | March-July 2021

Hit hard by what was revealed to be primarily an urban pandemic, cities across the world have been harnessing the potential of their proximity with residents, the private sector, and civil society to deploy rapid, innovative, and cost-effective solutions. Most of this innovation is likely to continue as part of a broader movement led by numerous mayors committed to boldly re-directing urban development towards environmental sustainability, social equality, and resilience.

Designed by Dr. Lorenzo Kihlgren Grandi, lecturer at PSIA and Columbia University in Paris, this conference series aims to engage distinguished mayors, scholars, practitioners, and students in a global discussion on the future of urban life in a post-pandemic world.

The five 90-minute conferences will take place on Zoom, with recordings made available after the event. Free participation upon registration.

The series is co-organized with the Paris School of International Affairs at Sciences Po, Columbia Undergraduate Programs in Paris, and Columbia Global Centers | Paris
