COVID-19 and the many measures to control its spread have fundamentally changed the way urban residents think of their cities and public spaces. Streets and squares once designated for cars now belong to pedestrians and restaurants; access to nature, open spaces and sports and leisure facilities has emerged as a vital need. Meanwhile digital interaction and socialization has rapidly accelerated, fueled by video calls, gaming, streaming and e-commerce. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of our local environment and accelerated emerging trends towards a healthier, more inclusive and active city, essential to inhabitants’ physical and psychological well-being.
