Climate urbanism as critical urban theory in Urban Geography

17th November, 2020

Vanesa Castán Broto and Enora Robin have published a new paper in Urban Geography. “Climate urbanism as critical urban theory” discusses how urban actors reshape not just the urban built environment but also the organization of social life through engaging in climate action. The authors invite readers to reimagine what it means to be urban in a climate-changed world. They propose the articulation of climate urbanism as a critical theory that both exposes the production of further inequalities associated with urban responses to climate change and provides new radical forms of practice for more progressive urban futures under climate change.
