We were extremely fortunate to be given a booth to present Metabolism of Cities over the entire period of ISIE-ISSST conference in Chicago (many thanks to … for this opportunity). For 4 days straight, we welcomed old and new colleagues to illustrate the MoC platform and figure out how it could be useful for them to use it.
Explaining how Metabolism of Cities works to conference delegates
Soon, the booth became an informal place of discussion over urban metabolism
Aside from presenting the MoC platform, we also interviewed 17 experts on their research asking 4 questions (What is… ? Why is relevant ? What are the main challenges in your field ? What are the next steps to overcome them ?). These brief interviews are meant to make urban metabolism research more accessible to a wider range of stakeholders.
