The Liveable City - London 2020

The Liveable City webinar on 18 June, 13:00 - 14:30, 2020



More and more people live in ever larger cities around the world. It creates a host of challenges, and it has put the question of how to create liveable cities for all on top of the international agenda.


To help further the discussion, the Danish Embassy in UK organises The Liveable City conference in partnership with leading UK stakeholders. Denmark has a long tradition of creating beautiful cities with healthy residents and a high quality of living, and The Liveable City conference will be a celebration of great achievements in architecture and urban planning.


This year's summer edition will for the first time take place online due to COVID-19. The webinar will be part of London Festival of Architecture's official programme, and will focus on how the pandemic puts new demands on the urban space.


Earlier, architects, consultants and contractors tried to create urban spaces where people gathered, but the pandemic has forced a massive behaviour change. The citizens of the city are now spreading, and this places new demands on how to design the urban space. Demands that may continue even when the pandemic is over.


So how to plan our cities after the pandemic? How will it overall affect the way we think about architecture? In addition, will the pandemic help us make our cities more liveable and further the green transition – or the opposite? These are some of the questions that will be discussed during this webinar by some of the decision makers in the industry.


The event is free to join on Eventbrite and speakers will among others include Camilla Van Deurs, Chief City Architect, Municipality of Copenhagen. Sign up for the webinar here.
