Member of Parliament for Cambridge, Daniel Zeichner, will lead a Parliamentary debate on the ‘future of small cities following the covid-19 outbreak’ tomorrow (25 April).


The debate will focus on the new ways of working that have emerged post-pandemic, what these changes mean for small cities like Cambridge and how our city can benefit from them.


The debate was inspired by a recent report from the Cambridge business and academic group, Cambridge Ahead, on how the pandemic is changing the way in which Cambridge, and cities across the world, will function


One of the most significant impacts of the pandemic is that many business leaders in Cambridge expect workers who can work remotely to continue to do so on average two days a week. Covid-19 has also affected Cambridge’s transport patterns and the demand for office space in the city centre.


Mr Zeichner said “during the Covid-19 outbreak many of us had to adopt whole new ways of working and many of those changes are here to stay. Cambridge has a proud tradition of innovation, which means we are in an excellent position to embrace these changes and ensure our city and its residents can flourish in the world of work post-pandemic.


Cambridge Ahead said: “the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of online technology altering the way we work as well as how goods and services are delivered. As a result, Cambridge has changed over the last two years and will continue to do so. The Westminster Hall Debate provides an excellent opportunity to explore how we can take advantage of this change and position Cambridge and other like-minded cities to experiment and adapt.
