The INHAF Webinar series ‘Rethinking Cities’ was conceived in July 2020, in the midst of and as a response to the Covid-19 lockdown, where there was an opportunity to reflect on our cities as they are and rethink current efforts. ‘Rethinking Cities’ feeds into an Inhaf initiative known as CITIURI – Citizen’s Urban Initiative. The idea was that a webinar would present, on a public platform several themes, covered by a broadly defined civil society; connecting to individuals, organizations, institutions, for their skills, expertise, experience and interest. It enables us to collectively map people and resources that could be tapped to strengthen this initiative; to build a supporting constituency through working together and sharing for wider ownership.

From June 2020 to September 2021, Studio Inhaf’s webinar series has covered 59 webinars, with over 340 local and international experts and over 106090 viewers.
