The final webinar on “Port-city scenarios during and after the Covid-19” will finalize the outputs of the previous webinars.
The Scientific Committee of RETE, representative of many geographical realities, expression of different competencies and of complementary points of view, invites to reflect on:
– what will be and how long will the effects of Covid-19 go on?
– how port city and coastal zone management will change?
– what role can port authorities and municipalities play?
– how have changed the marine traffics?
– how have relations between port and city changed?
– how have maritime urban communities reacted?
– how the port-urban landscape is changed?
– is the ecological footprint of port cities going to decrease?
