How can we ensure the long-term survival of high streets, and city and town centres across the UK? How do we balance the economic needs of footfall and people with social distancing? How do we allocate space that enables people to safely shop and spend time in our centres whilst balancing with our travel needs to move around and pass through?

This webinar will explore some of these challenges as well as the opportunities to reinvent high streets through the perspectives of expert speakers and a wide audience of decision makers, business representatives and transport planners.

It is part of Sustrans' Life After Lockdown series exploring the big challenges affecting people, travel and neighbourhoods as a result of Covid-19. What can we learn from this crisis and how do we build back better and thrive in the future? It is supported by Bike Life, the UK's largest assessment of cycling and liveable cities in the UK.
