If cities are partly responsible for the ecological crisis, they can also become a lever for solving it. Municipalities are well-positionned to implement changes. Starting from the notion of “terrestrial cities”, this series of talks invites experts from Marseille and Atlanta to share initiatives and strategies with the public. What should the sustainable cities of tomorrow look like? How can we reconnect our cities to the earth, to our environment? How can they become terrestrial?
Terrestrial Cities is presented by Villa Albertine and Atlanta Design Festival as part of City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille: Towards Earthly Cities.
Designed in 2015 and first implemented in Chicago and San Francisco, City/Cité is a transatlantic cooperation and exchange program on urban issues and city making, initiated by Villa Albertine. Coming to Atlanta for the second time, City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille 2023 will host discussions and artistic programming that highlight connections in culture, urban development, and society between Atlanta and Marseille.
