MY NEIGHBOURHOOD, MY DESIGN: ‘CO-’ AS A SUPERPOWER TO CREATE THE CITIES WE ENVISION
Never before have we experienced such a critical and decisive moment in defining the places in which we dream of living. The theory says that a city belongs to its inhabitants, but how can we ensure that people really participate in its transformation?
The world has the best possible resource to harness this process: the power of the collective. Along with the public sector and the academic and business worlds, we, as citizens, can also be active agents for change through dialogue and co-creation, making use of specific experiences, methodologies and instruments that connect our creativity. And, in this sense, design is a fundamental tool.
On 28 September at 6.30 pm, Bet Cantallops, Architect and Co-Founder of Saetaestudi, as well as the Coordinator of IED Barcelona’s Master in Design for Urban Environment, and José Fran García, Head of IED’s Innovation Lab, will hold an online talk addressing these questions, which will be broadcast on IED Barcelona’s YouTube channel.
During the event, real-life experiences from Madrid and Barcelona will be shared, in which the union between associative capacity and design have brought about the development of fairer, more environmentally-friendly, inclusive and balanced surroundings.
