          A pervasive absence of decisive political action on climate change, despite a rich trove of knowledge about its potentially dangerous consequences since at least the 1970s, combined with the failure of successive global summits to reach adequate resolution affects us all. Where do design and environmentalism cross over to make an impact on these issues? Along with the scientific aspects of ecological desig
n, we are interested to explore the intersection between design and the social sciences at large by explicating the concept of “city” and “citizen” in parallel. What is the relationship between city-making and citizenship? Can design provide new and richer tools for strengthening citizenship and advancing human rights and responsibilities? How can we test or evaluate our individual actions toward the built environment while becoming active participants, rather than passive “consumers” of the city? Can cities be modified or redesigned to address equity as well as sustainability? This conference is a collaboration between the Goethe-Institut New York, the School of Constructed Environments, Parsons the New School for Design, and Global Design NYU. The conference is inspired by and aims to be a response to the Goethe-Institut’s WELTSTADT project currently taking place across major world cities.
