The Future of our Cities

In the final of a three-part webcast series exploring our shifting world, listen in as leading McGill University thinkers and practitioners weigh in on the future of our cities.

Streamed live: Wednesday, September 15, 12:00 p.m.

As much of the world begins to emerge from the pandemic, many of us are wondering how our lives and our communities will change in the wake of disruptions caused by COVID 19. Will we ever go back to full-time office work? Has the pandemic forced us to rethink how we save – and spend – money? What will be the impact on our cities and the economy?

In this episode of the Made by McGill alumni webcast, Part 3: The Future of our Cities, we sit down with leading University thinkers and practitioners from the fields of finance and economics. Their insights will inform our understanding of our shifting world, and equip us with what we need to know to prepare for the changes ahead.
