Urban thinkers campus : Megacities’ post-covid planning

The Fnau with the global network for urban planning agencies (MTPA), the Institut Paris Region , Metropolis and ISOCARP, organized an Urban Thinkers Campus,  on “Megacities’ post-covid planning”, the 3rd of July 2020.

This Urban Thinkers Campus took part in the second series of campuses on the covid-19 crisis.
It gathered a panel of actors, international urban networks and representatives of megapolises, in order to exchange on actions of megacities facing the covid-19 and make recommandations to plan resilient megacities. The discussions have been articulated around two roundtables. The first one gathered the international networks to give a global view of the stakes, the second one gathering representatives of megacities to have a focus at the scale of megacities on post-covid policies and planning stakes.
