Reconfiguring Future Urban Infrastructures Webinar Series
Event Description

This webinar series brings together speakers from the three universities to discuss the future role of infrastructure in cities.

The COVID-19 crisis has put urban infrastructure under the spotlight. New questions on the ways we build (and build back) infrastructure in cities are now front and centre globally. Faced with a combination of economic, environmental, health and social challenges, cities are learning from each other, experimenting and innovating with strategies in an increasingly uncertain world. For many, this often involves both working with existing, while also building new, blue, green and grey infrastructure. This often means new roles for city governments, alongside private and third sectors agencies, and the introduction of new platforms and technologies as infrastructure is used by those who govern cities both to project them into the world economy while also being used as part of strategies to address issues of inequalities and social exclusion. This webinar series brings together speakers from the universities of Manchester, Melbourne and Toronto to discuss the future role of infrastructure in cities.
