Dialogues in Urban Development #2 Co-producing the city: By who, for whom?

Urban inequalities can be a result of the ways that some forms of knowledge and experience are privileged, and others are marginalised, in the planning, design, and governance of cities.

One response to this challenge is the idea of co-production. This event will bring together three scholars from different research traditions for a conversation on the significance of co-production in urban design, planning, and climate change governance.

We discuss what does it mean to co-produce the city? Co-production by who, and for whom? What knowledges, actors, and processes are required? And what is the role of co-production in making cities more equal?
