The COVID-19 pandemic has touched us all. While we are currently focused on getting through these trying times, we are also reflecting on the longer term impacts and lessons we can draw from this experience, so we can rebound and become stronger, greener, more resilient, and more equitable. We decided to push forward with the 2020 Livable Cities Forum because that is precisely what the Forum has always tried to do, bring us together to identify specific ways that we can become more connected and resilient.
The Forum may look a little different this year – online, smaller, and with no municipal host – but rest assured that the content is what you have come to know and expect from LCF. Varying sessions that span high level overviews of complex issues to hands-on workshops where participants can deep-dive and get their hands dirty with new and innovative resources and tools. I look forward to welcoming you to our virtual Forum for this exciting opportunity to build resilient and sustainable cities for future generations.
