Testing the Resilient City: New edition of Thinking Cities puts spotlight on COVID

It was once said that a crisis should never be wasted. The COVID-19 pandemic has been the biggest humanitarian crisis that the vast majority of us have ever encountered, and while several nations are still in its grip, others are starting to ease their way out of lockdown and attempting to regain at least some semblance of normality. But for urban mobility, creating a new normality is one of the most pressing issues facing cities and regions across the world.

With the COVID-19 crisis redefining urban mobility as we know it, we are delighted to launch the latest edition of our Thinking Cities magazine, 'Testing the Resilient City'.

Bulding the Resilient City or Testing It?

We make no apologies for more than half of this issue’s articles focusing on how cities have reacted to the pandemic. The original theme for this latest edition was 'Building the Resilient City', but the manner in which our contributors have dealt with these unprecedented events changed our thinking: these cities are already resilient, finding new, innovative ways to keep things moving during this challenging time.

Alongside COVID-related articles, we are pleased to feature other high-quality, wide-ranging content on the latest innovations and developments in urban mobility. 'Testing the Resilient City' features articles from cities across Europe and beyond, including Amsterdam, Berlin, Hong Kong, Lyon, Oslo and Vienna.

Over the coming weeks, we will put the spotlight on the articles in this new edition of Thinking Cities. Keep an eye out on social media for updates on all our articles!
