BEGINS the event blurb: “The need for redesigning how we live is not new. In the face of the climate crisis, more of us are trying to reduce our impact by living more locally, which in turn is helping communities connect and thrive.
“Covid-19 continues to have a huge impact on how we live and interact within our communities. It has prompted many of us to think about how we might live differently – bringing sharply into focus what we all need to live well locally and what our neighbourhoods mean to us.
“The concept of the 20-minute neighbourhood is a way to radically reconsider space, with meeting the needs of citizens at its core. The idea offers many solutions, and experiments have taken place in major cities across the globe. But how might this work rurally, where communities are sparse and have different needs? How can this be applied to different socio-economic situations? And how can we continue to improve our urban spaces to better meet the needs of a constantly changing world?”
