[en] Global Nighttime Recovery & Resilience

Cultural, community, and economic activity at night is essential to a city’s vibrancy and productivity and supports numerous local and international industries. But the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown night-time economies and cultures into uncertainty around the globe. In many cities, clubs, venues, and other gathering spaces will likely be the last to re-open, making night-time cultural economies highly vulnerable. As we begin to shift from lockdown to re-openings, we must re-envision how urban systems can coexist with the ongoing threat of COVID-19 — and those systems must extend into the night.
