Workshop « The changing organization of work and workplaces: drivers and implications for intermediary cities » :

En savoir plus :

COVID-19 outbreak not only caused a shift toward remote work, but it triggered behavioral changes for households and firms, which are here to stay, including new working arrangements allowing for more flexible “time” and “space”, and the rise of « flexible » and « hybrid » workplaces (e.g. co-working spaces, fablabs, etc.) as spaces of work, innovation and revitalisation for neighborhoods and cities.

The impacts of these changes are particularly relevant for #intermediary cities, which are small and medium-sized cities acting as “territorial hubs” in terms of key functions and services. The changing geographies of workplaces can provide opportunities to intermediary cities to revitalize and be more attractive, and also help a polycentric and quality urbanization in regions and countries.

The OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions & Cities workshop will convene a panel of experts to discuss how the changing geographies of workplaces are impacting neighborhoods and cities, and how cities – and intermediary cities in particular – can leverage the potential of ‘new’ workplaces to raise the attractiveness for people and investors aiming to consider “working from home” and “working near home”.
