    東大友の会オンライン・ダイアログ・シリーズ: 「Covid 19の経験から学ぶこと:ニューヨークと東京」

    8:00 pm - 9:30 pm ETオンライン

    Friends of UTokyo (FUTI) is pleased to present an online dialogue between Prof. Peter J. Macotullio (Director, Institute for Sustainable Cities at Hunter College; UTokyo professor, 2001-2006) and Dr. Geeta Mehta (Adjunct Professor, Architecture and Urban Design, Columbia University; UTokyo, PhD). Together they have several decades of experience about global cities in America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

    This is the inaugural talk in a series created to bring together UTokyo international alumni in the US and others interested in FUTI’s work.

    ABSTRACT

    Covid19 infection and death rates have been very different in New York and Tokyo, the two mega-cities with among the highest densities in the world. While the two cities are not lacking in financial capital, could social capital be the reason for such different outcomes? The speakers will present their research and analysis of the possible answers to this and show how social capital is the essential wealth of communities in not only preparing for future health or climate shocks, but also in addressing the ongoing issues of social inequity and social justice.
