During the last years, cities have seen rapid shifts to virtual and remote work, new partnerships across ecosystems, and unprecedented levels of adaptability. Now, as organizations and governments rethink what social inclusion means for cities, ensuring affordable lives, breaking the digital gap and “breaking” systemic inequalities are no longer optional. What do cities need to do to reinforce their commitment not to leave anybody behind? What are the best policy approaches to open up the city to all? How can cities meet the needs of displaced populations?
