Welcome to the third edition of our Global Urban Newsletter
Dear Urban Readers,
I am thrilled to share with you the 3rd edition of the Global Urban Newsletter. Looking back at the challenges of the past months, COVID-19 has re-shaped urban life around the world. Cities have been severely impacted by the pandemic, forcing governments, citizens, businesses and neighborhoods to rethink urban planning & urban engineering.
On October 31st we celebrate the United Nations World Cities Day, with this year’s theme Valuing Our Communities and Cities. In this edition, as we pay tribute to our communities and cities, we showcase our best practices, latest trends and developments to highlight how we, as key players, address the challenges of urbanisation and continue to contribute to sustainable urban development around the world.
Please also join me in congratulating the Tractebel Research and Innovation – ENGIE Laborelec Urban Team for having secured the Engie Innovation Trophy with SMATCH®, a sustainable and carbon-neutral mobility solution, a demonstration of how our expertise continuously evolves as we adapt to new market challenges.
