Aim and contents
The webinar "Culture, cities and the COVID-19 pandemic" considers the initial initiatives implemented by cities and local governments, and analyses the impact of the crisis in the cultural life of cities.
The webinar is a valuable experience for local decision-makers, planners and experts involved in the short-term, med-term and long-term strategies and policy-making in the post COVID-19 era. The webinar also drafts some of the main challenges to be considered to ensure culture is at the heart of the response to the Covid-19 crisis today and at the center of the measures to be taken in order to guarantee a sustainable recovery at the local level tomorrow.
The webinar is open to local and regional governments, and especially to officials and officers working in teams in charge of Planning, Community Development, Culture, Education, Heritage, Inclusion and Public Spaces.
The UCLG Culture Committee shapes this webinar according to the needs expressed by members. In other words, this webinar can be specifically prepared as a capacity-building activity for a group of key people working in the same government, or it can be designed as a peer-learning activity involving representatives of several governments.
