The third public conversation of the Switch On Mehrinplatz program involves the activists of Prinzessinenngarten the Nachbarschaftsakademie, and the MAZI-project discussing the capacity of bottom-up voluntary projects to foster urban transformation .
What skills and competences are formed and shared in spontaneous citizens initiatives? How these can be endorsed and mobilised? What practices can be employed to empower communities and foster a more just and sustainable city?
These questions will be debated in dialogue with Marco Clausen (Prinzessinnengärten) and Andreas Unteidig (Design Research Lab, MAZI-Project), and successively represented during the third Urban Reconnaissance Lab dedicated to the exploration of the “Spontaneous City”.
