From M.A.S.H. Hospitals to MicroGrids, Zoom Meetings to Green Transport – Remaking America in a COVID-19 Virtual Democracy

The worst wave of COVID-19 has yet to hit us, but it’s already clear the virus will forever change aspects of our economy, the way we organize our society, our urban form, and the meaning and practice of democracy. How might a greener, more equitable, more representative U.S. rise out of the trauma of social distancing, sickness and death?
