EUKN Webinar for Spain: Facing and Learning from COVID-19: European and Spanish Urban Strategies for a Resilient Future

Organised together with the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility, and Urban Agenda (MITMA), this webinar will take place on 14 January 2021. It will form part of the EUKN ‘Thinking Beyond the Crisis’ series, which explores the urban impacts of and responses to the coronavirus outbreak in EUKN member countries. 

Given their share of the global population, cities have been majorly hit, suffering from the social, infrastructural, and economic crisis set in motion by the pandemic. On the flipside of the coin, cities are also best placed to act and rethink their approach to urban space on the road to recovery. The webinar will look into how urban areas have acted as both implementation arenas of nation-wide measures and as laboratories for devising innovative strategies. The goal is to offer a meaningful platform to share experiences and reflect on urban strategies tackling different dimensions of urban health in light of the pandemic.

In the first part, the webinar will provide a European take on the issue of ‘health and the city’ during and after COVID-19, showcasing strategies from Spanish and other EU cities. In the second part, participants will be invited to interactive thematic discussions. The objective will be to co-produce practical recommendations for Spanish municipalities to adapt resilience strategies in line with Local Action Plans of the Spanish Urban Agenda (AUE) or City Strategies.

It will take place on Zoom, with interpretation in English and Spanish.
