The Norman Foster Foundation Presents The ‘Future Of Cities’ Conversations Series

Madrid, 24 November 2021 – In the face of crises like climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, effective and positive change in cities is an imperative condition to optimising public health, social equity and environmental sustainability for urban centres and the rest of the world. A call to action against cities that have become more spatially fragmented, less environmentally responsive and more socially divided, the city of the future is one that will meet and overcome such challenges while providing inhabitants with liveable spaces and a higher quality of living.
