With cities around the world emerging from lockdown, the festival will look at how we can create better, happier cities. Hillary Schieve – mayor of Reno, Nevada – joins us to discuss how she made creating better mental health in her city a priority – while a panel of architects and entrepreneurs examine the radical ideas for building better, fairer cities. Better living can’t be discussed without addressing better dying, so our panel of urban planners, anthropologists and funeral directors look at the future of death – and how this might evolve as we consider more environmentally sustainable practices in body disposition.
