The coronavirus that is currently sweeping the world is also affecting the Access Cities project. As the world shuts down, a project such as ours, which seeks to establish cross-border alliances for the purpose of fostering sustainable urban development, is challenged.
However, this does not mean that the project is going on hiatus. Like others, we are also mastering the art of online communication and adapting to new routines. Challenges are still taking place and you can access the overview of current challenges from each market here.
In addition to our normal activities, we are examining the way in which Access Cities can contribute to solving the crisis and ensure that sustainable urban development continues. A concrete focus for this work will be the theme of urban resilience.
To keep updated, we suggest you sign up to our quarterly newsletter, or regularly check our news page here.
We encourage everyone to stay safe and look after themselves.
