📺 Welcome to the 51st episode of the Circular Metabolism Podcast: Planetary Urbanization and Operational Landscapes with Prof. Neil Brenner and Prof. Nikos Katsikis 📺. 🏙️ On today’s episode we will talk about a different way of understanding, representing and interpreting cities through critical urban theory. In general, we all understand cities as the opposite of the rural areas. In fact, most of us have heard or frequently use the UN statistics that more than 50% of global population lives in cities. But that figure embodies a definition and a role of cities. Today, we will challenge this definition and look at the more intricate relationships between the urban and the non-urban through the concept of planetary urbanisation and operational landscapes.
