COVID-19 Response Webinars

Source:Infographia

Since cities around the world had started to develop different strategies and ideas to respond to the challenges that the current COVID-19 Pandemic brings, a large number of Webinars have taken place. These virtual events have allowed interesting discussions, peer-to-peer learning and ideas to be shared. The following table offers a selection of the most interesting ones Bürogemeinschaft Gauly & Volgmann (bgh.) has had the opportunity to listen and know about. We share it and update it regularly with the idea of support cities to navigate the large offer of Webinars available to them online by different organisations.
