COVID-19 has forced us to completely rethink the way we live, work and move around. It has begged the question: what is it that makes a great city?
Manchester is one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK. With cranes dominating the skyline, billions continue to be invested into the city centre as it evolves into a city of quarters. But with the population set to double in the next five years and the nature of work evolving rapidly, how can Manchester become a global showcase for the workspaces of the future?
By combining live, on-the-spot investigation with elements of virtual debate, this dynamic production takes a closer look at the lessons learnt from the past year and how Manchester will lead the way to becoming a world-class, zero-carbon city by 2038.
