9 June: Always Thinking – New Urban Communities
Always Thinking : New Urban Communities
Wednesday 9 June 2021
Always Thinking is a business development consultancy for the built environment. They believe that looking to the future and anticipating consumer change should form a key part of your business development approach.
This time last year they launched a webinar series with Philippa Wagner discussing some of the accelerated and emerging trends in response to Covid-19, and specifically their impact on the hospitality and workplace sectors.
One year on, the pandemic, in particular, has reshaped not only our behaviours but also our proximity. Our lives’ parameters have been redefined with the redistribution of our day-to-day – how and where we live, work, shop, learn and play, giving rise to new needs, new communities and a new sense of place and space.
Beyond the immediate response to the pandemic, we have the opportunity to rewrite our urban locale, build on these new behaviours and parameters and make better cities and towns for people and the planet.
Exploring the best in class of those who are already forging ahead and delivering against these new behaviours and value expectations and identifying the opportunities for developers, architects and communities, Always Thinking be hosting 3×30 mins webinars overt the next few weeks where they will be discussing some of the key trends and strategies that will shape our urban and ru-urban communities.
On June 9th, grab your lunch and join Always Thinking and Philippa Wagner, renowned strategy director, for the second in this webinar series ‘New Urban Communities’ where they will explore the heightened focus on community that has been borne from the pandemic, driving a shift from retail to residences, New Community Living and The Shared City.
