Beyond physical infrastructure and good decision-making, having a strong social compact is critical for cities to manage disruptions such as COVID-19 and climate change. With safe distancing now the norm, how can interventions such as Singapore’s Emerging Stronger Conversations and other international examples help cities maintain social ties and build resilience amongst its people? Professor Daniel P. Aldrich will join the panel of speakers discussing these important topics and questions.
