Webinar: Planning for Resilient Communities in the Midst of Pandemic, Social Justice and Climate Change Challenges

Planners around the world are working to ensure the holistic wellbeing of communities and helping cities build resilience to withstand multiple challenges. However, their work does not happen “in a vacuum”, planners these days are simultaneously handling the COVID-19 pandemic, managing social equity strategies to address deficiencies in social justice frameworks, and are dealing with the impending need to adapt and mitigate to face the effects on climate change. In more and more cities the pandemic, social inequities, and climate change seem to be affecting the most vulnerable. This webinar will integrate experiences from different contexts: the USA, Europe, and Latin America to exchange among planning practitioners lessons learned, strategies, and policies employed to cope with these compounding challenges and discuss together how planners can deal with these three contemporary challenges.
