About the webinar

The Department for International Trade (DIT), in collaboration with Arup, is delighted to invite you to explore direct impacts of Covid-19 on smart transport and mobility within a future city context, discuss short term responses and identify longer term challenges and opportunities. COVID-19 has a disruptive impact on the way we live and move around, on cities and society as a whole. The current necessity of social distancing is re-shaping urban transport.
