“With the world in the grip of these two crises, I’m delighted to be taking part in this exciting and innovative event, looking forward to the recovery of our economies and communities and exploring planning’s vital role in shaping a post Covid-19 future.”

All individual events throughout the week will be free and open to all to get involved and pick up expert insights and practical knowledge.
