CL 4 Workshop: Teleworking, commuting and the housing market in the post COVID19 era

This workshop proposes to address the question of the evolution of housing markets and access to the city due to the very rapid evolution of telework driven by the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the impacts of such transformations. Topics of interest include the creation of teleworking centres in neighbourhoods and policies to develop local retail and services such as seen in the quarter-hour city concept. It takes place March 17-18 2022 in Marne-la-Vallée, France. The meeting can be combined with an UERA Thematic Working Group on Accessibility that is is planned for the day before the event, March 16, on the quarter-hour city, also in Marne-la-Vallée.

These empirically based contributions cover various different European studies for different regional contexts.
