Urban Arena – a podcast about sustainable and just citiesCities can play a crucial role in creating just and sustainable futures. Urban Arena is a series of critical conversations with activists, entrepreneurs, intellectuals and policy-makers in different European cities who are working, in complimentary and conflicting ways, to create cities that respond to the twin challenges of justice and sustainability.This podcast is part of three year project: UrbanA - urban arenas for sustainable and just cities. The project aims, through a series of 4 Arena events: synthesize and broker knowledge generated by prior research and innovation projects; translate this knowledge into action; empower participants to apply this knowledge locally; facilitate interaction among diverse people; and influence policies in favour of sustainable and just cities. It was funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
