MODULE 8: POST-PANDEMIC FUTURES
In this last module, we discuss the future of smart cities. What will the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on our cities be? Will governments leave smart city projects aside and shift their priorities towards economic recovery? Or will smart city projects be fast-tracked by the accelerated digitalisation wave? With social inequalities coming even more to the fore in the crisis, are cities learning how to become more inclusive and just? And what will the role of technology be in all of this?
