The Global Cities on the Frontline Speaker Series, began in March 2020 in response to the unfolding of the pandemic and its devastating effects around the world. Each session, as a result, was driven by audience demand and oriented to equip city practitioners with best practices for responding as expeditiously as possible –to save lives.
Since its inception, the speaker series has hosted sessions at least once per month, covering various topics from refugees to water, from schools to leadership, and from housing to food systems. Opening sessions featured on the ground stories from Huangshi in China’s south-eastern Hubei province and Milan, Italy –related to response to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Currently, the series aims at broadening its approach beyond the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and onto providing spaces of knowledge exchange around the most relevant and pressing challenges our cities are facing today.
