The future of cities has been the centre of debates in the last 3 months all around the world. The reorganization of public space, social and economic activity to new priorities in such a short period of time, has forced local governments to think different. The IUC-LAC Open Dialogues have tried to capitalize the added value of international city to city cooperation & thematic networking of European cities, which have started earlier to suffer the impacts of the pandemia, and LAC ones, to transform these impacts into opportunities. The present report presents the main “takeaways” around each webinar helping us to identify key topics that will be reinforced and accelerated in the “new normal”.
