Advanced Brainstorm Carrefour (ABC)

Aims and Scope of ABC
The aim of this online session is to provide an innovative dialogue between three prominent speakers and a broad group of junior regional scientists, online connected all over the world:
- Will the COVID-19 pandemic change our views on urban density and design?
- Will suburbs or rural areas become more attractive residential areas?
- Does COVID-19 provide evidence for a close connection between urban poverty and urban health?
- Will there be a drastic change in the high-mobility trend of the past decades?
- Will in the aftermath of the corona crisis the old-fashioned concept of the `death of distance` in a digital society gain a new momentum?
