Virtual expert exchange with focus: "Municipal Response to COVID-19"

In the virtual expert exchange format, colleagues share their experience on specific topics over 1.5 to 2.5 hours in a virtual room.

The current focus of the exchange is on learning experiences at the municipal level in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cities worldwide are still experiencing the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic throughout all their municipal departments. In addition to public health care, municipal services must be maintained during the crisis. Local governments must also ensure their own ability to function properly. Some consequences of the pandemic, such as halting economic development, hit local authorities first. Municipalities are currently having to learn to cope with new situations very fast. But the crisis has also shown how important the resilience of municipalities is: this directly applies to local crisis management and disaster preparedness as well as the need for continually adaptive urban planning and development towards increasing the resilience of cities. The current crisis has shown and proven once again that resilience is an essential capacity of municipalities.

Many cities and municipalities have found solutions to the new challenges and developed new strategies. In order to better address the issues related to the pandemic, it is now necessary to share and possibly develop these solutions and strategies together.

From August to December 2020, Connective Cities organised a series of virtual dialogue formats in cooperation with committed municipal stakeholders on measures, challenges and approaches to overcome the Corona crisis. In 2021, the focus is on "Recovery / Urban Renewal" with and after COVID-19. Built.Back.Better!
