Clipping - 20 September 2021

A plural city is a place that welcomes the flows, the exchanges and the contacts between multiple communities. It is a regenerative space that summons humans and more than humans to a debate around paths, transgression and imagination, in order to (re)define other ontologies and possible cartographies. More-than-human thinking helps to reformulate how the city can be conceived, beyond the current human-centered perspective, so that it can be designed, governed and lived as a biodiverse and ecocentric place. This intervention, as part of a larger action, explores the convergence between political action and ecology, and its potential to reposition a profound reflection on alternative patterns of being, doing and living in neighborhoods.
