Join the call to rethink our Metropolitan Spaces

 

These days, the COVID-19 pandemic confronts us more than ever to challenges, contradictions and vulnerabilities in our urban communities. It tends to exacerbate pre-existing tensions and inequalities, in particular in relation to women. The lockdown also sheds new light on issues and problems in relation to public space, mobility, density, local businesses, adequate housing and key infrastructure.


Aiming to look beyond the management of this crisis and thinking on the aftermath of the pandemic, the Metropolis Presidency and Co-Presidencies launched this call based on the commitment to rethinking metropolitan areas worldwide. This is a call to action open to local and regional governments, institutions and urban leaders interested in how to create more inclusive, democratic, sustainable and less unequal metropolitan spaces.
