Join this talk, delivered via Facebook Live and featuring an interview with Dr Anshu Sharma, Co-founder of SEEDS, by Professor David Sanderson, Inaugural Judith Neilson Chair in Architecture at UNSW.
Some 1.6 billion people working in the informal economy in low- and middle-income countries have been significantly impacted by COVID-19, with many suffering losses of over 80% percent. One consequence is the migration of hundreds of millions of people, putting lives at risk. Many more may die and suffer invisibly due to the lockdowns than the pandemic itself. In the face of a rapidly urbanising and mobile world, where are the seeds for change – and, which ones should be nurtured, and which should we be weeded out?
This event is held as part of the "Resilience at Risk: Cities, Crises and Confronting a Changed World" series, which is co-hosted by UNSW Sydney, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, the Australian Pacific Security College at ANU, and SEEDS.
