About this event

Can we build on the pandemic experience to make our Cities and Places smarter, more inclusive, and more responsive to the needs of our citizens and businesses?

Covid will impact our lives long after the vaccine has rolled out across the country. People long for ‘normal’ but what is our normal now? Will we ever return to the 9-5 office commute? Can we build on the astonishing digital, data and technology foundations that were built in the midst of pandemic response? And if so, how can we reimagine our Cities and Places?

This event is free to attend for the public sector and accredited for five hours CPD.

Please register using your public sector email. Please note that registrations from personal email addresses may be rejected.
