The city is the future. By 2050, more than two-thirds of the planet’s 10 billion people will live in urban centres, according to the United Nations. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on some of the issues faced in the cities of today. So, we had better drag our cities into the 21st century, and fast. Will we be able to build truly safe and resilient systems for our citizens? How will we handle the explosion in urban data?

Event held by the Science Media Centre

COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of scientists engaging with the media. Public understanding of the nature of the virus and the behaviours needed to minimise risk is essential for saving lives. It’s paramount that these topics are communicated correctly and that evidence has its say. We have some excellent science and health journalists in the UK, but the pandemic will never be covered as accurately as we want it to be without the direct involvement of the experts themselves.
