Urban Pamphleteer #5: Global Education for Urban Futures is now available to read online, simultaneously released with the print edition during a launch at The Bartlett, UCL, on 17 September 2015 as part of the programme for the Urban Lab+ Symposium.

This issue features projects that document, contextualise and comment on existing pedagogies and teaching, as well as critiques of existing models, and suggestions of future challenges and opportunities. It highlights innovative, critical and speculative pedagogies that are inter- and trans-disciplinary, practice-oriented, and comparative; and which help to facilitate international collaboration through visual methods and digital platforms.

Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change. Issues 1, 2, 3, and 4 on topics ranging from 'smart' cities, regeneration, urban design and heritage in Doha, are available to read online.

Urban Pamphleteer is designed by Guglielmo Rossi. The series editors are Ben Campkin and Rebecca Ross (University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins).

Urban Pamphleteer #5 has been supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and the Urban Lab+ International Network of Urban Laboratories (Erasmus Mundus Programme Action 3).
