Throughout the pandemic, predictions of ‘de-urbanization’ and the “death of the city” became the norm in global headlines.

This, combined with unsettling climate reports and soaring social injustice, has invited a rethink on what the next phase of urbanization in the Americas will look like. National and local governments must address how future cities will be powered and connected, how to make buildings and transport more sustainable and efficient, and how to turn cities into clean, safe and equitable places to live and work for all citizens.

Although there is no doubt that Covid changed modern urban living, the narrative that big cities will cease to exist is premature, to say the least.

In fact, with more than half the world’s population living in cities already, it is projected to rise to 60 percent by 2030, according to UN reports. How will cities need to evolve to adapt to the challenges of climate change and the new hybrid ways of living and working? What will the post-pandemic city look like? What factors contribute to successful urbanization models? And how are city goals financed and achieved with limited resources?

The Financial Times is thrilled to launch the Future Cities Americas forum which will bring together government leaders, corporates, innovators, academics, investors, and financial services, to establish a common vision for the sustainable, equitable, and safe cities of tomorrow.
