Helle Søholt discusses what’s next for public space as we emerge out of the pandemic.
Welcome to What’s Next – our latest season of 360 Degree City.
How will COVID’s impact take shape in the long-term for our mobility, public spaces, supply chains, economies, and society? In this series, John sits down with a number of folks to talk about what’s next for cities.
To start off, hear from Mary Rowe, President and CEO of the Canadian Urban Institute.
Citizens across Canada share their stories about why, and how, they are involved in their communities. These folks are active in a variety of ways, from making masks for neighbours during COVID, to starting a market to connect the community, and banding together to fight for housing as a human right. To be an active citizen, no action is too small.
We’ve been producing 360° City for over two years now, and we want to hear from you to make the podcast better. What do you like? What topics should we cover next? What don’t you like? Until August 10th, fill out this short survey. You’ll be entered the chance to win a great urbanist package from past podcast guests, including a beautiful print by Raymond Biesinger, multiple city-inspired books and a “city builder” mug, all worth over $300
