Reading Development

Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo

In Search of a Decolonial Urban Transformation

“We ask whether the WBGU report Humanity on the Move, as a major catalyst for urban sustainability science and agency, reproduces ways of thinking that could ultimately contradict the idea of a Great Transformation towards global sustainability. We contest the dominance of Western knowledge on cities and urbanization which shapes much of the report, even while the urban future is largely unfolding in the Global South. We suggest taking theories from the South into account, as they open up our understanding of both urban scholarship and sustainability science in general.”
