REVERSIBLE: Is our current productive model reversible? can we change its logics? - INCLUSIVE URBANISM AND OPEN CITIES
Reversing current production processes is difficult because most of the products we consume today were never designed with their end of life in mind. Society is beginning to question this approach; high-tech firms are asking for forgiveness for their strategies on planned obsolescence. Governments are making laws about ecology and circular economy and the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ slogan has been embedded into the global consciousness. The Fab City initiative is progressing this cultural shift, questioning how circularity can be practiced in the city at all levels; from the architectural and planned elements to the way we live as part of it.

Reversible: INCLUSIVE URBANISM AND OPEN CITIES

Cities’ economic logic is putting pressure on citizens and communities around the world. Cities are produced by their citizens, who can provide economic wealth and social cohesion when empowered to do so.

Reversible: Social justice and decolonisation in the digital age

Digital technologies have the potential to create network effects in a click or a second, at a global scale. But what happens when they increase inequality or suppress basic human rights? How are we going to enable the scaling of civic rights and justice for all?
