CPF Online: Should Remote-Working become the "New Normal" after COVID-19?
Time & Location
About the Event
After the COVID-19 lockdown is over, should Remote-Working permanently replace commuting as the “New Normal” wherever possible?
The negative impacts of commuting on the planet, infrastructure, cost/provision of housing and the overall quality of life are well known to most of us. Petrol and diesel fumes, cycling lanes, increased congestion and slower travel times have a major negative impact on cities and the health of those nearby. Infrastructure is always facing a bottleneck somewhere; is over-burdened for several peak hours per day, every day. Cost and provision of housing within commutable distances are increasingly out of reach for employees. In addition, commuting times and travel disruptions are reducing productivity and quality-of-life for those spending hours in the daily to-and-fro.
Positive side-effects of adopting todays' approach could include that local and regional towns can become centres of activity for meetings, provisions and regular local commerce again. In addition, with the broader adoption of remote-working, demand for housing can be spread more evenly across a country. The repatriation of the countryside could provide a healthier, broader and happier existence for all. And of course a VAST improvement in our environment, planet and levels of pollution.
This session will seek to discuss this and possible ways to practically, effectively and collectively adopt the remote/local-working approach.
