Urban Metabolism In Policy And Practice: A Global Discussion

In collaboration with local partners and funded by the Urban Studies Foundation, Metabolism of Cities organises a three-part seminar series in 2019 to further the debate around the uptake of urban metabolism in policy and practice. The seminars will each be full-day events (1 day) and will take place in Cape Town (South Africa), Beijing (China) and Brussels (Belgium). Each event will be structured in a similar way and involve city officials, practitioners, and academics. The seminars will have a strongly local content, but lessons and insights from every location will be shared at each subsequent seminar.

The tentative dates for these seminars are as follows:

  • Cape Town: early May 2019
  • Beijing: July 2019
  • Brussels: October 2019

Details of each event will be posted under events on the website once they are finalised. To collaborate or participate in these events, do not hesitate to get in touch.

Funding for this seminar series is provided by the Urban Studies Foundation Seminar Series Award. Metabolism of Cities is looking forward to organising this series together with its partners.
