City in times of crisis: building a network of care and solidarity

This Right to the City Lab is designed to support and provide visibility to endeavors of Right to the City activists, mainly concerning housing issues. Media content and knowledge produced within the Lab aims to reach directly to vulnerable groups, but also to the general public to raise awareness about housing and other Right to the City issues and to push for necessary change. RttC Lab will additionally reflect on new urban life modalities and explore the various forms of cooperative practices, intersectional networking and bottom-up approaches to social change as examples of good practices and knowledge pools crucial to overcoming the crisis we are facing.
