The second video of the Pandemic Resilient Cities series is out!

In this week's appointment, the main topic is Health Infrastructures: the debate aims to re-think health infrastructures in cities and the role of architects and planners in creating pandemic resilient cities and health facilities.

The experts participating in the debate are Jeffry Lazarus, a world-renowned expert on infectious diseases and head of the health systems team at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), Anna Silenzi, an architect working within WHO operational support and logistic health tech team, and Michele Di Marco, WHO HelpDesk coordinator for the COVID-19 support and EAHR's CEO. The discussion will be moderated by Chiara Garbelotto from Emergency Architecture & Human Rights.

You can find the video on our webiste: cafx.dk/pandemic-resilient-cities/

The talk is part of a series made in collaboration with Emergency Architecture & Human Rights + Think-Fast: A Collective Urban Response to COVID-19

ABOUT THE TALKS
We are sharing the belief that the fields of Architecture and Planning have a high contribution in mitigating the next pandemic and increasing urban resilience. It is for this reason that we are introducing a series of 5 talks to bring experts from the built environment, the health sector and the humanitarian sector into conversation to debate and answer questions.

The talks will focus on the role and positionality of Architects and Planning Practitioners in preparing for Pandemic Resilient Cities where basics such as access to safe housing, space, clean air, food and water is not considered a privilege but a basic Human Right.

While everyone will be affected by the challenges emerging from the current crisis, the impact is hitting hard on the most vulnerable ones: the elderly population, migrants, displaced populations, slum dwellers and the so-called ‘low-skilled’ workforce, who rely solely on their everyday income. However, these vulnerabilities aren’t new and were not merely caused by the Pandemic, but gradually accumulated by multiple political, economic, social and spatial factors, that reduced our preparedness for such a scenario and left Millions of people vulnerable to health crises and disasters.
