Critical Urbanists

ASTUS has a collective called the "critical urbanists"! With Critical Urbanists we set up events where we discuss topics that are related to the city and things we are interested in, for example feminism, ablesims, inequality, the climate crisis. These events tend to be relatively relaxed, everyone can contribute, no matter your previous knowledge or experience. However, the events are mostly based on texts, which will be shared in advance. We kindly ask you to have a look at the texts before joining so we have a common basis for the discussion. Are you interested to join this committee? You can contact us at criticalurbanists.astus@gmail.com or take a look at our collective page.
