​​​​​​​EUKN Urban Review July 2020

The period of lockdown-easing is well underway in Europe; countries have opened their borders and terraces across the continent are bustling with people drinking their first beers of the summer - albeit at a safe distance. With some lessons about Europe's crisis-response already learnt, the focus has now turned to planning the recovery. The question of how we rebuild local economies to be more resilient to these kind of shocks is at the tip of everyone's tongues. This month's newsletter focuses on the theme of the moment: rebuilding local economies in the wake of COVID-19.
