S3, Ep. 7: How do we build more just cities?

How do we begin to rectify our failing public infrastructure? Loadshedding, potholes, public safety and public transport issues are just the tip of the iceberg.

This conversation between our host, Ntombini Marrengane and Jodi Allemeier, urban development specialist and activist, couldn’t come at a better time. With a predicted 70% of the world’s population living in urban areas by the middle of this century, human-centred urban planning is vital.

If you dream about climate-conscious, walkable, interconnected urban spaces that don’t only serve the minority but prioritize equality and access for all, this episode is for you. Change is on the horizon and you can be part of it! Make sure to subscribe to our podcast so you don't miss an episode!
