Transformative Cities is an opportunity for progressive local governments, municipalist coalitions, social movements and civil society organizations to popularize and share their experiences of building solutions to our planet’s systemic economic, social, political and ecological crises.
Verso Books is the largest independent, radical publishing house in the English-speaking world.
Thousands of new cities are needed to house the increasing global population – projected to reach 10bn by 2060. From China’s planned Jing-Jin-Ji hypercity to African techno hubs and sprawling refugee camps, Adam Greenfield explores what the future holds

The UK community repair movement came together for the first time at Fixfest UK on 6 October 2018, and wrote the following Declaration
Plastic waste, in particular PET, which is typically found in soda bottles, is becoming abundant in African cities. In Dar es Salaam, one of the most rapidly urbanizing cities in Africa, BORDA found that about 400 tons of plastic waste per day remains uncollected or unrecycled. Although about 98 percent of the solid waste generated per day can be recycled or composted, 90 percent is disposed in dumpsites.
The collectors collect about 90% of everything that is recycled in Brazil. Self-employed workers are the basis of the pyramid of an unregulated and unrecognized sector.
They survive by selling what they collect. Plastic and cardboard, for example, are worth about R$0.20/Kg (USD 0.04/Kg), and the glass about R$0.05/Kg (1c USD/Kg).
In our research we sometimes encounter material that may be useful to educators, so have set up this page to support bringing repair into the classroom.
We will continually update this list as we find good resources.
We welcome your contributions.
City Repair facilitates artistic and ecologically-oriented placemaking through projects that honor the interconnection of human communities and the natural world. City Repair has accomplished many projects through a mostly volunteer staff and thousands of volunteer citizen activists. We provide support, resources, and opportunities to help diverse communities reclaim the culture, power, and joy that we all deserve.
If the ambition beneath the instrumentation of the body is ostensible self-mastery, and that of the home is convenience, the ambition at the heart of the smart city is nothing other than control – the desire to achieve a more efficient use of space, energy and other resources.
Here, we developed the first spatially explicit dataset of urban settlements from 3700 BC to AD 2000, by digitizing, transcribing, and geocoding historical, archaeological, and census-based urban population data previously published in tabular form by Chandler and Modelski.

WHAT? Dundee Urban Orchard - otherwise known as DUO - is a city-wide art and horticulture project supporting individuals, community groups and cultural organisations to plant and care for small-scale orchards across Dundee.

Ministry of Space is a collective founded in 2011 with the aim of monitoring future development of Belgrade and other Serbian cities.
We already depend on the smartphone to navigate every aspect of our existence. We’re told that innovations—from augmented-reality interfaces and virtual assistants to autonomous delivery drones and self-driving cars—will make life easier, more convenient and more productive. 3D printing promises unprecedented control over the form and distribution of matter, while the blockchain stands to revolutionize everything from the recording and exchange of value to the way we organize the mundane realities of the day to day. And, all the while, fiendishly complex algorithms are operating quietly in the background, reshaping the economy, transforming the fundamental terms of our politics and even redefining what it means to be human.
Sustainable Communities Initiatives (SCI) is a charity working at a grass-roots level with communities of all ages on social and environmental sustainability. All our projects inspire, support and increase resilience in both the individual and in community groups, and take place at our Earthship Fife Visitor Centre, in schools or community centres, or at community events.
Our projects generally involve people’s dreams, people’s waste, a stretch of the participants’ confidence and a lot of fun! We’ve built a Visitor Centre out of tyres and cans, and lots of greenhouses out of plastic bottles. We’ve brainstormed with too-many-to-count community groups on what they’d like to make together, and left them feeling resourced enough to use waste creatively on their own.
Welcome to the New York City Internet Health Report, a Mozilla project made possible in collaboration with the NYC Mayor's Office of the Chief Technology Officer. To demonstrate what makes internet health meaningful for stakeholders and communities at the municipal level, this collection of case studies offers a portrait of a vibrant city working in different ways toward a common public good – an inclusive, safe, secure, open, and decentralized internet.
