Panel Discussion

17 November 2020
UTC: 9:15 PM – 10:30 PM

The unprecedented overlap of a global pandemic, economic crisis, social unrest and climate change has underscored the deep structural flaws and inequities in market-driven, urban societies. But there are shining examples of leadership and creativity amidst the headlines. Leaders from inside and outside government, and from all walks of life, have shown ingenuity in the response to these simultaneous crises. This panel affords an intimate look on how several cities in the Americas have tackled challenges around education, housing, health care and more from the perspective of people on the front lines.
