Town Planning Review Call for Viewpoints related to COVID-19
As a rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic Town Planning Review is planning an all-Viewpoints issue.
Amidst the upheaval and anxiety in our daily lives across the globe, from the personal to the professional realm, is an opportunity to bring our professional expertise to bear on the COVID-19 crisis. Town Planning Review is committed to disseminating to readers critical perspectives about the novel coronavirus pandemic from thought leaders in both the academic and professional communities.
We invite contributions to Town Planning Review that address multi-disciplinary perspectives related to urban planning and the COVID-19 worldwide crisis. Viewpoints may actively engaging discourse on issues ranging from public transit vulnerabilities, to emergency planning and preparedness, to food security and food system adaptations, to the impact of COVID-19 and pandemics on urban density, to disproportionate demographic impacts of COVID-19, from the homeless, to refugees, to low-income communities. All ideas, big and small, philosophical and practical, are welcome, and Viewpoints may touch on various scales of inquiry (local, metropolitan, regional, national, global). The Town Planning Review co-editors especially value contributions that include equity and inclusivity aspects.
In every local context, the pace of daily news is fast and furious, but authoring a Viewpoint will allow scholars and experts an opportunity to take a giant step backward and offer a wider lens onto the crisis.
