Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
The working lives of India’s urban waste pickers show the hidden connections between everything that matters in the city. Managing India’s urban waste will always be about more than just the waste itself — it’s about jobs, money, people’s health, safe food, energy and access to clean water — and the complicated flows between them from one place to another. It’s also about more abstract questions too — justice, power, politics, and the need to organise.
As this story suggests, creating more sustainable cities isn’t just about finding green fixes — it’s about negotiating different and conflicting viewpoints, values, conflicts, trade-offs and uncertainties together, revealing hidden connections and making new ones.
