PAST EVENT Tuesday December 15 2020

Covid-19 challenges the growth of modern megacities. Crowded urban areas, from New York to London and Mumbai to São Paulo, have accounted for a disproportionate share of deaths from the virus. This is not the first time plague has come for cities, and it won’t be the last. Each time, they have bounced back.

What is the future for large, superstar cities after the pandemic ends? What lessons do they have to offer, not only for important policy questions, but broader debates around growth or equity? Our urban future likely depends on the choices we make today.
