The “scalar normal”: Processes of rescaling
Should we support the economy and the unemployed
now, and create joint mechanisms showing empathy
with people in other places and countries?

The “perceived normal”:
Perception of closeness and distance
Will people be afraid of density and apartment buildings and how can
spatial designs support people to feel comfortable in their neighborhood?

The “lived spatial normal”: Using public spaces
A main risk here is that we stick to our familiar networks, and stay in our
bubble, losing an appreciation for unexpected encounters and unexpected
support. How can we then connect with the diversity of life?

The “mobility normal”:
Use of public transports and health safety
Will the current crisis be an opportunity to foster healthy transport choices
(walking and cycling) and reduce emissions from car and flight mobility?

The “community normal”:
Emotions, values, and organization
Is Corona a fast-tracked version to understand the climate crisis as it opens
windows to see how social activities reorganize, and how we can adapt and
support each other?

The “never-normal”: Inclusion and exclusion
How can we ensure that existing inequalities are not exacerbated by the
Corona crisis and that new inequalities do not arise?
