Over the course of last year, we saw radical changes to our work and social lives in the wake of the global pandemic. Our usually vibrant cities became quiet and desolate places. As hope and optimism for the end of the pandemic grow, questions have begun to arise about the future of our cities. Will metropolitan life ever look the same or has the landscape of city living changed for good?

As part of our King’s Experts Series, join chair Mark Kleinman, Professor of Public Policy along with our panellists Philip Hubbard, Professor of Urban Studies and Katharine Willis, Professor of Smart Cities and Communities at the University of Plymouth and Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Urban Science and Progress at King’s, as we discuss how the pandemic may change the way we live and work and what the cities of the future may look like.

Register here to join live on Tuesday 26 January, 17:00 GMT / 12:00 EST / 9:00 PST.
