Within the next five years, 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas.  Urban living comes with large-scale economic advantages and society benefits from economies of scale. But, COVID-19 is challenging urban living. We have introduced the term ‘social distancing’ and some policy analysts have even argued for the de-densification of cities.

Join us for a discussion where our panellists will analyse this perceived conflict.

Date: Thursday, 27 August 2020
Time: 14:00 to 15:30 (South African Standard Time – GMT +2)

Please RSVP to Elelwani Mmbadi at mmbadiE@ufs.ac.za  no later than 25 August, upon which you will receive a Skype for Business meeting invite and link to access the webinar.
