What are the actions that cities can take in order to face the challenges brought about by transitioning times and the need for urban resilience?

Through testimonials from experts and cities on new sustainable economic thinking, new development policies promoting urban resilience, public services ensuring health protection, social justice and the quality of life of citizens in the post-COVID era, the notion of resilience and transformation will be questioned.
