The Wiki on Sustainable Just Cities is one of the main resources being produced by UrbanA. It is an ongoing, open-ended online collaborative database and knowledge source. It captures the learning process of the UrbanA Community of Practice and is an important part of UrbanA’s knowledge commons. It includes a database of approaches to just and sustainable cities.
Urban Arena Podcasts form a series of critical conversations with activists, entrepreneurs, intellectuals and policy-makers in different European cities who are working, in complimentary and conflicting ways, to create cities that respond to the twin challenges of justice and sustainability.
We want your voice on the pod. If you’d like to be an Urban Arena’s podcast correspondent then please answer the question ‘What is a sustainable and just city?’ in a maximum of 3 minutes. We encourage you to think about urban sustainability and justice together.
Things to keep in mind when recording – choose a quiet place (get in a cupboard, climb under your blanket!); turn off fans, TVs and phones; listen to your recording possibilities (is it better via phone or with mic?).
