Whose Right to the City? Juxtaposing Nature, Tech and People
Seminar

Friday, 02 September
Mittelschule EG Werkstatt
180 minutes
English

Who are the residents of our cities, and what rights do they have? By escaping an anthropocentric mindset, we will explore and imagine a world that goes beyond human stakeholders. We will trace and analyse humans, the built environment and its technologies, as well as non-human nature within an urban context. What interactions exist, and how, if at all, can possible conflicts be solved? We will jointly draft a manifesto to summarise our findings and reframe the perception, design and code of urban co-existence.
